Support excellence in craft education by joining this special group of contributors who give $1,000 or more each year to sustain Penland’s work.

In 1929, Lucy Morgan began an educational experiment at Penland to support creative traditions and build community through instruction in craft. Today, Penland School of Crafts is a national center for craft education offering workshops with craft’s finest instructors, a resident artist program that nurtures artistic careers, and a gallery that presents extraordinary craft work to thousands of visitors each year.

Please consider an annual gift of $1,000 or more to honor and continue Lucy Morgan’s leadership—using the work of the hand to help people live creative lives.
