Penland Receives Generous Donation from Blacksmith

Iron studio coordinator Daniel Beck overlooks smithing donation
Penland School of Crafts has received a remarkable donation from Ed Crane. Ed is a blacksmith who lives in Little Switzerland NC, just a ways uphill from Penland. His age forced him to give up blacksmithing, so he gave Penland everything in his shop: lock, stock, and boxes of nuts and bolts. 

The donation includes several large tools that will go right into the iron shop, many hand tools, and a few pieces of equipment that are needed elsewhere on campus. Thanks, Ed!
