Penland welcomes serious students of all levels of experience—absolute beginners to professionals. We seek a diverse student population representing varied experiences, backgrounds, races, professions, and age groups (minimum age 18). Some workshops are tailored for beginners and some require prior experience; most welcome a range of skill levels.
Registration is currently open for all spring 8-week concentrations and 1-week workshops.
Registration for Summer 2018 workshops will open on January 8, 2018 at 9 AM EST. We will take applications on a first-come, first-served basis starting on that date. There will be no lottery system for workshop registration this year.
Scholarship applications for summer workshops are due February 17, 2018.
