Wire Tree Workshop

July 16 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Form your own decorative tree in this workshop with Linore Huss!

Ever wondered how people make a tree out of wire and beads? This is your chance to learn!

We will cover basic plier skills for those who need it, choose from a wide array of beads for your leaves, and then get to work twisting and forming our tree. This class is great for beginners and kids 12+, but those with experience using wire will also enjoy creating this ornate little tree!

Students will leave with a completed tree, instructions should they choose to make more on their own, and a supply and tool resource list.

Local ceramicist and metalsmith Linore Huss has always been adventurous and creative. She loves to explore new mediums, and the world around her is always an opportunity to find new shapes and textures. Linore encourages her students to show creativity in every process, and loves when they teach her something new as they come in with open eyes and minds.

Linore graduated with her BFA in metalsmithing and ceramics in 2018, and has since taught in Ohio, Maine, and Tennessee in various age ranges and topics. Her classes with us include a variety of jewelry workshops, as well as occasional other topics such as tie-dye.

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.
