Penland School of Crafts Annual Community Open House this Saturday
This is such a great event! From the Penland School of Crafts 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 2017 Penland School of Crafts community open house is Saturday, March 4 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 forging steel into a hook at the anvil.
The Mitchell High School Marching Band Boosters will be selling hot dog lunches in front of the Pines Dining Hall at Penland from 12:30 until 5pm as a fundraiser. The Penland Coffee House will also be open.
