Scholarship Auctions
Penland sessions end with an auction of work donated by students, instructors, and friends. These auctions are celebrations of the work done in the classes and an opportunity for neighbors, travelers, and craft lovers to enjoy the energy of a Penland session. The proceeds from these auctions support scholarship programs. No admission charged.

Auctions take place at 8:00 PM in the Northlight Building.
