Upcycled Jewelry: Hardly Anything into Really Something

*This workshop is cancelled due to lack of registrations.  Thanks for your interest!*

Come learn how to turn a strip of leather, old bike tubes, junk mail or a fancy piece of paper into a piece of jewelry. We will be turning scraps into fabulous accessories by altering their shape and appearance. Good looking, light, durable materials lend to easy, inexpensive construction. You'll be surprised with the outcome!

Join artist Dana Cowley as she shares her ability to make beautiful objects out of not-so beautiful stuff! You can see examples of Dana's 2-D artwork here:

Instructor Dana Cowley received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking at Plattsburgh State University of NY in 2008. She has since furthered her education and work experience at the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester NY and at Arrowmont School of Arts and Craft in TN. She began bookbinding and leather working in 2008 after taking a class with Daniel Essig and later, Dolph Smith. Dana has experienced and practiced many different crafts, including basket weaving, rag weaving, bookbinding, painting, drawing, clay, and gardening.

No experience necessary. All materials and supplies provided. For participants ages 14 and older, minimum of 4 participants, maximum of 12. Seniors (55+) receive a 20% discount off of their registration fee. Pre-registration is required.

Cost: $40
