I want to thank Jason Burnett and Bill Griffith for making this forum happen. I was honored to be included in the group. I had more fun that week then I've had in a long time. For more info on the surface forum please visit Arrowmont's Facebook page.

Arrowmont is located in Gatlinburg Tennesee, one of the crown jewels of Americana culture. The town is full of air brushed tee shirts, BBQ restaurants and Southern kitch. The Willie bust (aka Willie Jesus) is just one of many fascinating cultural shrines in Gatlinburg. If you get a chance, Arrowmont is a great place to spend a week studying craft. Their summer workshop schedule is now available at www.arrowmont.org.
