Introduction to Upcycled Jewellery
Jewellery making is a beautiful way to turn salvaged treasures into wearable art. This workshop is all about finding new value in both common and uncommon objects such as plastic and cork offcuts, old game board pieces, computer cable and buttons which become the raw materials of upcycled jewellery. We will cover the basic techniques of jewellery making using valuable resources diverted from landfill. Participants will learn techniques such as joining and the use of tools and will be able to make their own earrings, necklace and/or bracelet.
Our 2017 workshop program for adults features traditional and innovative projects with a focus on sustainable creativity.
