I first came to Penland School of Crafts as a work study student 16 years ago.
I had know about it for a number of years before then, and had always wanted to go there. It always sounded like such a magical place to me (because it actually is). Over the years I’ve been back countless times, as a student, studio assistant, visitor and friend. It’s been such an important place in my life.
It was a huge honor to finally be a teacher there. It’s been a goal of mine for a long time.
It was especially amazing to teach alongside my dear friend Ben Richardson and to have our friends Kevin and Herve teaching downstairs. And especially to have such amazing students and assistants.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO MADE IT SUCH AN AWESOME TIME. AND ESPECIALLY THANK YOU TO @penlandschool FOR HAVING ME.
Let’s do it again sometime.
