Show-and-Tell at Arrowmont

For the past 4 days there has been some intense creative work going on here at Arrowmont.  Last night students put out the (mostly-in-process) results for an informal open house.  Here is a small sampling.

From the wood turning class Derek Weidman‘s students turned out wonderful creatures.  It boggles the mind to try to understand how these were created on a lathe.

The wood turning facilities here are extraordinary.

We walked home to the light of a ghost moon.  (Some stayed and imbibed a bit of the other moonshine.)

  1. Hi Jan,

    hanks for the reports of the last two days.

    you stay and play in the area or head home after the workshop?

    so go to Nashville and visit Hank
    William’s home near Music Row.
    want to visit Hatch Prints also. Nothing else like it !!

    as well go to the Country Hall of Fame too.

    has great facilities. About the best of all. Penland in NC
    is where you might think of going next.

    to see the final work from the five workshops.
