Penland School of Crafts Weaving Concentration

Bhakti Ziek and Tommye Scanlin were the instructors for the weaving concentration course which lasts for eight of the best weeks a student could have. Alice was asked to present some of her current work for a few hours last Friday and I came to hang out and shoot some pictures.  The firs t is of Bhakti, a true national treasure in weaving. The second image is of Alice and Tommye. Tommye is an expert tapestry weaver and teacher. It was great to see a fair number of younger weavers.

  1. Great photos! I am a big fan of Penland with a particular interest in ceramics (and photography, of course) and loved going to the auction in the summer. What a great experience for Alice. Nice to learn about those weavers – I am a fan of Edwina Bringle. 😊
