Refurbished classroom at Tryon Arts and Crafts School

Published 10:23 am Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Tryon Arts and Crafts School, through the support of the Polk County Community Foundation, has completed upgrading its multimedia classroom.
The multimedia studio is best described as the “all-purpose” classroom, used for a variety of classes and workshops, as well as the “Summer Sizzler’ classroom for youth.
The refurbished classroom has a new glass kiln and an Enviro-vent exhaust system that serves both the new and existing kilns. Additional items furnished through this PCCF grant included locking cabinets, a rolling cart, sink, electrical outlets for the kilns, water heater and additional equipment used for glass fusing, stained glass and enameling.
Tryon Arts and Crafts School invites interested students to see firsthand this new studio. A kaleidoscope-making workshop will be held in the studio Saturday, April 28 with Jerry Pospisil, a fused art glass lamp workshop May 18-20 with Karoline Shaffer and John O’Rourke, and a Saturday fused glass class. There is also an ongoing stained glass class on Wednesday afternoons from 1- 4 p.m. A new stained glass class will begin on Wednesday, May 9.
