The Jackson County’s Green Energy Park will hold its holiday open house on Dec. 11, inviting the public to visit and observe local artists who will be giving demonstrations and offering locally made gifts at low prices.
“This is a chance for folks to watch handcrafted glass and metal art being made up close, to interact with the artisans, and purchase a locally-made gift or ornament that will be treasured for years,” said Timm Muth, Director of the Green Energy Park.
Glass artists Tadashi Torii, Aaron Shufelt, Judy McMannus, Clayton Hufford, Hayden Wilson; along with metal artist John Burtner and jewelery artists Brock Martin and Julie Boisseau will be giving demonstrations starting at noon and until at least 5 p.m.
Some of the available gifts will be glass and metal ornamental jewelry, vases and platters, sculpture and fireplace tools.
