Two art classes will be held at the Jackson County Green Energy Park in Dillsboro on Oct. 13. A glassblowing seminar will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (with 45-minute time slots available) while a blacksmithing class will run from noon to 3 p.m.
With the assistance of a resident professional artist, participants will work with their chosen medium to create a unique piece of functional art. In both programs, you will learn the basics of the medium you are working in, along with important safety guidelines.

Wear closed shoes and long pants. Glass artwork available for pickup 48 hours after class. A $50 payment is due at registration.
