Stunning views were in abundance throughout the campus.
It was a special treat to visit the tapestry class. All the instructors for this session at Penland were from Australia.
The tapestry classroom.
There was more than just weaving, this is the painting studio.
What an inspiring view.
Creating beauty can be a messy process.
Clearly we visited the wood turning classroom as well as glass blowing, photography and metals. Our tour guide was Edwina Bringle. She began exploring textiles at Penland School of Crafts in the early 1960s. For 24 years, she taught weaving and textiles at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte until 1997, when she retired, returning to Penland.
This is the original dye studio, also referred to as the Toll House as it had the only telephone on campus for many years.
