Fall and Spring at Penland… It’s on!

Fall and spring workshop information is available on our website and we are taking applications now…

Fall 2015 includes eight-week workshops in clay, glass, iron, metals, painting, printmaking, and wood along with one-week workshops in books, clay, glass, letterpress, metals, papermaking, photography and textiles.

There are work-study scholarships available for all eight-week workshops. The deadline for fall scholarship applications is August 1. The deadline for spring scholarship workshops is November 28.

There are several special scholarships that cover everything except the application fee, and several more that reduce the work-study fee. A few of these special scholarships have an application deadline of August 1 even if you are applying for a spring workshop. (It’ll make sense once you read the descriptions). Scholarship information is available here.
