Penland School of Crafts July 22 – July 3

Studies

Penland becomes an addiction. On this my third visit, I study paper cutting with Beatrice Coron, mistress of cut stories. The campus invites exploration. I am calmed and seduced by the 450 acres of green. Everyone is happy to be here. Classes run 9-5, but most, including me work into the night. Some stencil, rub or dye but it is the black cut silhouettes that call to me. The two weeks are very short. I love the clean sharpness, but also the personal markings the hand makes in forming cut image. I come home needing to cut again.
