My arrival at Penland School of Crafts.

For two weeks this summer I will be taking a stone setting & clasp making class with David Butler at Pendland School of Crafts. The trip got off to a rocky start, but I'm here and it's wonderful! Stay tuned!

Session 4, Upper Metals, tha't me!

This happened on the ride up. Totally crappy, but it could of been so much worse!

I finally arrived on Saturday and it is glorious! This is Craft House, where I'll be staying during my session.

Cutest mini-dorm room cubicle ever!!!

The Metals studio where I will be spending most of my time.

The Pines, where I will be spending the rest of my time. I'm on a work-study scholarship, and like most work study students I will be doing dishes 11 times a week. It's worth it!
