Details can be found on the fall workshop page.

Most of these workshops are open to students of all skill levels. To enroll, call the Penland registrar at 828-765-2359, ext 15. The Penland Standby Program offers discounts to area residents who take unfilled spaces in Penland classes shortly before the classes begin.
