Learn the art of making jewellery, and do it with salvaged materials!
Jewellery is an ancient human tradition that spans cultures worldwide. This month, at Reverse Garbage Queensland we want to practice that tradition, making use of the abundant supply of reclaimed materials in contemporary society. Our personable introductory jewellery-making class will give you the skills and techniques required to continue crafting in your own time. You’ll never be short of gift ideas again!
“Upcycled jewellery is a welcome addition to any outfit” says Workshops Co-ordinator, Mary Trabucco. “With the rise in popularity of sustainability and do-it-yourself crafting, it only makes sense to host salvaged jewellery-making workshops.”
“There will be a variety of different types of materials so that participants can customise their jewellery. This includes cute, vintage board game pieces plus factory discards for an industrial chic” Mary says. “The workshop focuses on basic skills, so you can learn to turn just about anything into a wristband, necklace or earrings. With these skills, you’ll be set for funky, homemade gifts forever.”
“We’re also excited to introduce our newest facilitator, Jodie, to our adult workshops. She has been popular in our eco-art workshops for children, and has a background in making jewellery from found materials” Mary says.
The Introduction to Upcycled Jewellery workshop includes tools, materials, and a friendly facilitator.
