Semester at Penland School of Crafts

The Penland Program offers students a domestic off-campus study opportunity in craft and careers on the campus of Penland School of Crafts in Western North Carolina. This semester-long program balances artistic skill acquisition alongside historical and contemporary understandings of craft economies and production in the Southeastern Appalachian region of the United States. The program will allow students of all artistic levels to gain hands-on experience in a variety of craft mediums while encouraging students to be architects of their own careers by providing them with the necessary tools to envision their dreams, promote networking opportunties, build communities, and maintain their own creative motivation.
