Photo of the week: Work-Week Style

nose

You may not have seen them on the catwalks of Paris and Milan, but nose warmers are in, especially here, where the temperature dropped to the teens as our diligent fellows moved furniture out of the Pines in preparation for its renovation–just one of the feats of strength and care they are performing this week for the school. Core fellow Tyler Stoll knitted these dazzlers for (left to right) Jerry Jackson, Taylor Shelton, Audrey Bell, Tyler (the creator himself), Joshua Kovarik, Will Lentz, and (in the front row) Jamie Karolich, Sarah Rachel Brown, Meghan Martin, Angela Eastman, and Emily Rogstad.

Photo of the Week: Pin Registration!

Printmaking instructor Amanda Lee demonstrating the wonders of the pin registration system. Yeah, that sounds kind of unexciting — unless you are planning to make multicolor prints and you’d like things to line up really well, in which case you’d be as enthralled as Amanda’s students.

Photo of the Week: This Is a Wonderful Thing

core reunion at Penland

We’re having a great week at Penland. It’s our first-ever core retreat (and reunion) — an open-studio week for current and former core fellows. You can look for a few blog posts from the week and we’ve turned our Instagram feed over to former core fellow Rachel Garceau. Check the Instagram hashtag #penlandcoreretreat.

Interested in becoming a Penland core fellow? Learn more about this two-year program in craft here. We have four fellowships available beginning in 2015, and applications are due next month: October 15, 2014.

Photo of the week: A Silver Wire

Textiles student Kim Mirus chisels a small channel to inlay silver wire after watching a demonstration in the technique by Kiyoko Fujie, at left. At right is metalsmith Hiroko Yamada, longtime Penland instructor and friend, who invited Kiyoko to Penland along with a group of female metalsmiths from Japan. (We’ll have more about Hiroko’s presence at Penland this summer in a future blog post.) Kiyoko is part of the first generation of female metalsmiths to apprentice with Japanese masters.
