In this workshop you will learn to create amulets, rings, chains, pendants, even tiaras from unusual and unexpected materials.

Use found materials such as rusted wire, metal, old photos, string, wax, wood, rocks or shells that you collected on the beach, tiny doll parts, or beads you created beforehand, and anything else you have lying around.

You will learn basic light brazing techniques on steel wire with brass rods.

Examples will be provided as well as basic materials and tools.
Please bring a sketchbook or paper for drawing ideas – or bring your completed sketches.
