Ceramics Studio - 224 Western Avenue, Allston, MA 02134

Presented by Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard

The “Our Community Lectures” are an on-going series dedicated to celebrating scholars and organizations dedicated to the promotion of the study of craft mediums both locally and at the national level. 

Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard’s Director of Education, Kathy King, also wears the hat of a “Penland Ambassador” and will present a lecture on the history and current opportunities for craft education, scholarship and residency at the Penland School of Crafts located in the mountains of North Carolina. King believes that much of her personal, artistic development was influenced by her experience with Penland initially as a work-study student, later as a studio assistant and, most recently, an instructor of two-week summer courses as well as an eight week, spring concentration.

Penland School of Crafts is a national center for craft education dedicated to helping people live creative lives.  Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Penland offers one-, two-, and eight-week workshops in books and paper, clay, drawing, glass, iron, metals, photography, printmaking and letterpress, textiles, and wood.  The school also offers artists’ residencies, community collaboration programs, and a gallery and information center. 

This event is free to the public. RSVP below or email Kathy King at kking@fas.harvard.edu. Space is limited
