Penland, A Winter Visit
At the end of my winter break I took a road trip from the snows of Iowa to the calm sun of Tybee Island, GA (for kayaking and citrus trees). Along the way I stopped off for a couple days near Penland School of Crafts. (Post disclaimer, I worked for Penland for a few years.)
For the past few years Penland has hosted a winter residency for artists working in printmaking and letterpress. They also host one-week and eight-week classes in Spring and Fall, as well as summer one to two week classes. Penland holds a special place in my heart, not just because of the years I spent there, but also because they have rich programming that supports artists at various phases of their careers.
When I paid a visit this winter, Emily Arthur and Rory Sparks were helping the first group of winter residents. Emily’s group focused on intaglio techniques. Here are some photos of the work they completed and of Penland’s Paul Hayden Duensing Letterpress and Printmaking Studio.
