I went to Penland this past weekend. We all went to see Rachel's core show on Friday night and then we went back on Saturday so we could look at the work in the show more closely and then take a tour with Rachel. I'll post more about this, but I watched the video above in the visitor's center/gallery right before we left. This video pretty much outlines my opinions on the role that craft should play in communities. More on this later though... I don't know how to put this into words, but Penland is a magical place. I somehow felt "home" while we were walking around. I hope I am able to visit here more on a regular basis.
