Green Energy Park to offer paperweight-making class

Jackson County Green Energy Park in Dillsboro is offering a class that will teach students how to create a glass landscape paperweight on Saturday, May 26. Sessions will be available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in 30-minute time slots.

With the assistance of local glass artist Aaron Shufelt, participants will work with molten glass and an optic mold to create interesting effects in a beautiful glass paperweight. No experience is necessary, and children ages 13-17 may participate with a parent present. Participants are asked to dress in cotton clothing with long pants and closed toe shoes.

Space is limited to 12 participants each day, and pre-registration is strongly suggested though some walk-in slots will be available. There is a $25 registration fee.
