HCC to Offer First Stained Glass Course Since Floods of 2004
Haywood Community College will offer the first Stained Glass course since the floods of 2004 wiped out the college’s continuing education arts facilities in Clyde.
Thanks to the community and HCC’s new Creative Arts Building, these classes once again have a place to call home. The new 38,000 square foot facility will house fiber, clay, metals, wood, drawing, painting, computer, lapidary and glass courses.
The Introduction to Stained Glass course will introduce the basics of creating stained glass art. Students will select glass materials, cut, grind, and assemble stained glass windows. The course focuses on beginning students and participants will complete the copper foil stained glass process.
Instructor for the course is George Kenney. He has created stained glass works of art from more than 20 years, first as a hobby and then professionally. He is the owner of Cedar House Stained Glass in Waynesville.
Students may choose from two eight week offerings. The first will be held on Wednesdays beginning August 7 through September 25 from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. The second session is held on Mondays beginning September 9 through October 28 from 6 until 9 p.m.
Fee for the class is $148 and students are responsible for purchasing their own glass. All other supplies are included. Register by calling 627-4500. For more information about the Introduction to Stained Glass course, please call 828-565-4240.
