Penland School of Crafts
A must-stop for art lovers is the Penland School of Crafts, a nationally-renowned center
for craft education tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina
(6 miles from Spruce Pine). Penland offers one, two, and eight-week workshops in
books and paper, clay, drawing, glass, iron, metals, photography, printmaking,
textiles and wood. The historic campus deep in the mountains is a delight to tour.
A recent major renovation created large spaces for both exhibits and sales area for
works of current and former Penland instructors and students. Ask gallery staff members
about areas on the campus that are open for touring. They will give you a map with
options to drive or walk. The gallery is open March through early December,
Tuesday through Saturday, 10 AM-5 PM and Sunday 12-5 PM. Free guided tours of
the campus are available Wednesdays
