This is the sign leading to what is called Lower Metals. Penland School of Craft has two metal studios – one is upstairs and called Upper Metals, the other is downstairs and called Lower Metals. Both times I have been at Penland, I have been in Lower Metals. In fact, I’ve been at the exact same desk. It’s a desk that works for be because its location keeps my left-handedness from affecting others.
I’m excited about the class I am taking – Jewelry as Personal Adornment. The instructor is Robert Ebendorf, who is well known in the art jewelry world. I am lucky to be in the class. There were more applicants than spots, so all of us that are here got in on lottery. I hope it is a good two weeks and I get a lot out of it.
Dear Reader, Please note I have returned from Penland. I wrote a series of posts long hand while there and will be posting them over the next few weeks.
