Intro to Stained Glass: Glass Birds

July 28 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us in making an adorable stained glass suncatcher!

Choose from an assortment of glass colors, textures and transparencies to completely customize it into a one of a kind piece. You’ll learn how to cut glass, grid it to fit a pattern, apply copper foil and finally solder it all together. This is a beginners class, perfect for anyone that’s curious about the process and techniques that go into making Tiffany Style Stained Glass.

Please wear close-toed shoes and natural fibers like cotton/woll (jeans and a t-shirt work great). All long hair should be pulled back.

Age 10+, under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian.

Joy Riggs started making Stained Glass in 2000. Her passion for it ultimately led her to open Studio 116 in Kingsport where she specializes in custom stained glass panels and whimsical suncatchers. Joy loves to create unique pieces based on her customers’ ideas, and enjoys the challenge of trying something different.

A calendar has been created called the This is Kingsport events calendar which will serve as a non-public forum to provide citizens with information about social and organizational gatherings held within the city. The city will disseminate information to the public through this online calendar about social and organizational gatherings which are conducted or promoted by community partners with which the city currently has partnership agreements. Additionally, social or organizational gatherings held on city owned property to which the public at large is invited will be published on this calendar.

Each year the city enters into partnership agreements with multiple community partners some of whom in turn support the city by organizing events or promoting events of members and affiliates. By creating a common source for the dissemination of information about community events the city will be furthering its support of those community partners which in turn support the city. Moreover, the city wishes to and will benefit from highlighting gatherings which will be of benefit and enjoyment to the public.

Community partners may communicate their events or those which they promote to the city which will disseminate the information through the event calendar. Furthermore, the city of Kingsport will publish on the calendar those community events which are held on city property. In order to achieve the city’s goals only those events described herein will be published on the This is Kingsport event calendar which will be curated by city staff.
