Looking ahead to fall, discounted spaces are available now in Penland’s eight-week session, which runs Sept. 21-Nov. 14. The workshop roster includes a pottery class focusing on innovative ceramic surfaces; a hot glass class; a class in the iron studio that will cover forging, welding, and fabrication; a jewelry class emphasizing the use of color on metal; a workshop in encaustic and mixed media painting; a class covering four fundamental printmaking techniques; and a natural dying workshop in the textiles studio.
