‘Carnival’


Okay it's spring and if you've had the first lick of sunshine you may be feeling like this....
 
...if so we have the workshop just for you.

Box Hill Institute has partnered up with the Melbourne Fringe Festival and clever kids Jessica Morrison (that's me) and Coconut Lu (one of my favourites) to present the festive workshop.....



Broken jewels, ugly jewels, paper clips, garden twine, fabrics, feather dusters, magical things you can’t throw out but have no clue with what to do…..?
Artists and creators of playful jewellery label ‘ Princess C, Lady J and the Upper Crust’, Jessica Morrison and Coconut Lu can help!
Bring your favourite broken gems and useless bits and over a four hour workshop we will help you magic them into a gorgeous pair of earrings fit for a Carnival…(or just dinner with your mates)

What to Bring:
As many items to be repurposed as possible
Your best imagination
Drawing pad and pencil/pens
Not essential but if you have your own pliers/ hand tools, please bring them

We will supply:
Sterling silver wire for earring hooks
Basic tools and electrical equipment
Two creative minds eager to share

Please be aware that we will be making in a functioning jewellery workshop so please wear leather covered toe shoes and bring a hair tie.

Saturday 6th of October
12-4pm
