Well the first weekend workshop has come and gone! This year Arrowmont extended the weekend workshops by one day, and the reviews went well. We started thursday evening with a few hours of instruction and getting everyone familiar with studios. Friday morning we all hit the ground running!
Andy taught a figurative ceramics class and rocked out, making up to the last moment and putting the hot box to good use. Jennifer's enameling class had the kilns going all weekend, making and laughing as hard as they could. Both Andy and Jenn had an amazing time teaching the workshops, and can't wait until next time.
The residents would like to send a huge THANK YOU out to everyone who came this weekend. The energy on campus was amazing to have after the long winter. The staff was excited, the instructors and students were amazingly wonderful and of course the work study rocked it out! We are super stoked for this next year of workshops and are already looking forward to this coming thursday when we get a whole new group in!

Also, as a side note spring had sprung here in Gatlinburg and the flowers are up! Daffodils, tulips, forsythia, japanese magnolia and those tiny pale purple flowers by the road are all in bloom! Jenn is raiding the flower beds to decorate her hair and constantly getting chased away by Big D and Big E, the two men who keep Arrowmont's grounds looking so beautiful!
