Cox is here to donate hair to Locks of Love, a non-profit organization which furnishes wigs for children with cancer and other long-term medical hair loss conditions (www.locksoflove.org/). Cox is at the salon because he believes people should be connected to their community.
“I have this particular artistic medium of winemaking that I can share. My class is nowhere near the noble effort of Locks for Love, but people should be involved in any small form that they possibly can,” he said.
Cox teaches his popular “The Art of Winemaking” class at the Harris Arts Center again this fall. He welcomes new students and has new methods available for returning students. Each student will learn wine-making techniques and take home at least 15 bottles of wine. Students in previous classes have made elderberry, pineapple, muscadine, plum wine, and others.
“It is the opportunity to share the enjoyment for the culinary and social delight that is wine,” he said. In these busy times, making connections with others in the community can seem overwhelming. For Cox, connecting to the community can be as simple as making a haircut more meaningful and making a glass of wine.
Cox’s class starts in October and meets on six Thursdays from 6:30-9:30 pm: October 21 and 28, November 4 and 18, and December 16 and 30. To take the class, a person must be 21 or older.
To register, stop by the Harris Arts Center (www.cgarts.org) on 212 South Wall Street in Calhoun or call 629-2599.
The cost of the class is $65 for HAC members and $75 for non-members; equipment and materials are provided. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
