Sarina Angell, Penland Core Fellow

Sarina Angell‘s work never ceases to delight! During her time at Penland, she has expanded her work with fibers, explored many different media, and fallen in love with wood.

Beginning her fellowship in the spring of 2020, Sarina will complete her time as a Penland Core Fellow this fall. Working with Sarina and watching her grow as an artist is an absolute pleasure. We are excited to share these images of some of the works she has created during her time here at Penland (so far!).

The Penland Core Fellowship is intended for early career artists looking to expand technical skills and material fluency while working to support the day-to-day operations of a craft school. Core fellows live communally, participate in intensive craft workshops, and help run the school. We are currently accepting applications for the core fellowship. Please click HERE for more information and be sure to submit your application by October 15th!
