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!”

Thanks for noticing, garbagelatrash

One thing I can do for my community perhaps is to show my appreciation and my gratitude for letting artists get away with what we do. After all, I’m just a weirdo stuck in my studio doing what I like to do…

Read more here from artist Hiroyuki Hamada about his experience teaching at Penland this summer. His workshop, ‘Finding Voice,’ gave space for artists to reflect on inspiration, reflection, and the role of the artist in the world.
