Pickens Senior Center Granger Fiber arts schedule announced for January

PICKENS — In case of inclement weather, Granger Fiber Arts will follow the Pickens School System recommendations for “start delays” and “closings.”  If there is a delayed start time which ends before the scheduled Fiber activity, the activity will occur at the scheduled time.

New classes to be scheduled based on requests:

Spinning Wheel Use:  If you are interested in teaching or learning how to produce yarn using a spinning wheel, please contact Lucy Harward.  When you contact Harward, please let her know whether you wish to lead (teach) the group, assist the leader, improve your skill, or “learn the basics.” Also, let her know if you have a wheel or will need to borrow one.  The Center currently has two antique, working wheels which may be reserved for your use at the Center. The Center would like to start this activity this month.  If you are interested, please contact Harward by January 16.

Stained Glass: This class will be led by Cheryl Thorp and limited to three participants.  The sessions will be held in Thorp’s home studio where she and her husband are designing and producing a stained glass piece to be installed in at the Center. Participants will learn about stained glass design, appropriate glass selection for the design, and design production.  Sessions for participation are anticipated to begin sometime in February.  Please contact Harward of your interest ASAP.  Participants will be accepted in order of “sign-up.”  Those beyond the first three sign-ups will be added to a waiting list for future reference.
