I am going to Pennland this summer for a two week work shop. I had
marked them off my list before because most of the workshops I would
have chosen are two week duration and I generally don't like to spend
that much time away from the business.
The workshops at Arrowmont are about the same distance away and are
only one week, but so far they have had nothing in which I was
I will advise you of another location, The Appalachian Center For
Crafts that is a part of Tennessee Tech and is located on Centerhill
Lake at I 40 exit 273,just west of Cookeville TN. I have been there
three successive summers and was well pleased with the workshop and
their wonderful metals studio.

I'm not going there this summer because I liked the workshop at
Pennland better and being in a rut is not really good.
I value my time at Appalachian Center....... it was of tremendous
benefit. They have a great classroom/studio with every tool known to
the trade for hands on use. I was able to evaluate some of the more
esoteric tools to learn I didn't really need it. The place is in the
boondocks but the accommodations are great. The suites of 4 rooms
with a common area house 8 in comfort. The food is good.
