Dogwood Crafters Co-Op is offering two workshops this month at the Dillsboro Masonic Lodge. To register for classes, call Dogwood Crafters at 586-2248 by the deadlines indicated below.

On Thursday, Oct. 7, from 10 a.m. until noon, a Hammered Metal Ornament class will be taught by Dogwood Crafter Joan Marsden. Participants will learn how to shape and hammer aluminum wire into hearts, trees, stars and other designs for unique ornaments. This project requires moderate hand and finger strength and reading glasses if needed.

Cost for the class is $11, and all materials will be furnished. Deadline for registering for is Oct. 1.

Marsden will also be the instructor for the second workshop – Beaded Serving Pieces – where participants will learn how to add beads to the handles of serving spoons and forks, baby spoons or sugar tongs. Bring reading glasses, if needed, because the beads are small and the wire fine.

This workshop will be held on Thursday, Oct. 14, from 10 until noon. The cost is $11 and all materials will be furnished. Register by Oct. 7.
