It’s been a very long summer.

I would like to write more about the beginning and middle of the summer, but the end of it is too present in my mind to catch up with all the earlier news.

I spent the first two weeks of the summer assisting Linda Threadgill in the Penland School of Crafts metal…

Thank you for writing this, ctylerjewelry.

Blue beauty! Student Patrick Carter posted a visual diary documenting his dyeing and weaving at Penland on his Instagram account—and notes inspiration from reading Bluets by Maggie Nelson and A Field Guide to Getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit. Patrick and his instructor, Mary Zicafoose, hold up his finished work.

"If you have a hard time being in a lush region with temperamental weather shifts, or have problems with the sound of cicadas, or cannot deal with having limited Internet connection, or dislike eating wholesome meals in the company of people you barely know, or don’t like having roommates or sharing a bathroom, then maybe, just maybe, you might consider a pass on the Penland experience (or at least take your meals to go and/or request a single room.)
But not me.  Penland, thank you for this amazing journey. I hope to return soon!”
