I received a pleasant telephone call from Penland School of Crafts today informing me that I got into summer workshop I applied for with a full work study scholarship (yay doing dishes in exchange for an education.) This pleases me immensely! The class is called Form/Fab with Myra Mimlitsch-Gray. I saw her work and lecture in Philadelphia last year and she sort of became my role model. Also I have only a small amount of experience forming/raising and am really excited to give myself space to try my hand at some larger scale metalsmithing. The class is not until June, but it is always nice to have something to look forward to.
Penland is always an adventure... can't wait.
