1972

1972 was “a year of building firm foundations of organization, and a year of increased understanding of the directions in which Arrowmont is growing.” For the summer Craft School program, Arrowmont conducted three two-week courses and four one-week courses to provide opportunities for more people to come to classes. Marian Heard, Arrowmont director, also held additional craft workshops during the year. Sandy Blain spent her second year as assistant director.

NCECA hosted at Arrowmont

In March, 1972, Arrowmont hosted the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) annual conference which drew over 600 people. While not staying in dormitories on campus, the conference utilized all of Arrowmont’s studio spaces, grounds and auditoriums for workshops and forums.
