Spring 2023 Workshop Preview
Registration opens on September 1!
Penland’s 2023 spring workshop program will include two distinct sessions. Our signature concentration workshops are two months long giving makers a rare opportunity to settle into the studio for an extended time, taking advantage of beautifully-equipped studios, first-rate instruction, the camaraderie of a cohort of fellow enthusiasts, great food, and the wonder of spring in the southern Appalachian mountains.
This will be followed by a short session, running from Sunday night through Friday morning, for folks who want to dip into a particular medium or technique or just need a creative break from the rest of their lives.
All spring workshops are open to participants of all skill levels; beginners are welcome.
Scholarships are available for all of these workshops. The scholarship application deadline is October 15, 2022.
Enrollment for full-paying students remains open until workshops are filled. Waiting lists are available for all full workshops.
