Penland School of Crafts Annual Community Open House this Saturday

Taking a break from the Crimson Laurel/Appalachian Terroir news to make sure everyone knows that Penland's annual community open house is this Saturday, March 5th. This is an awesome event - and it's free! If you've never been, go!

From the Penland website:

The Community Open House is an annual event that opens the doors to Penland’s studios to between 350 and 500 adults and children from Mitchell County and beyond, engaging them in free, quality hands-on studio experiences. The Community Open House also offers information about Penland's upcoming workshops and other programs.

Each year, over 100 artist volunteers from the surrounding community make this day possible by helping visitors with the hands-on activities in the studios.

The 2016 Penland School of Crafts community open house will be on Saturday, March 5 from 1-5 pm. A range of craft activities will take place around the Penland campus, from making a clay pot on a potter's wheel to developing a black-and-white image from film negatives.
