Making Workshop

Hi Everyone
We have an exciting Making Workshop  today - making Fibre Jewellery. You can read back here for more details about the project. 


Our Making Group will make a necklace and bracelet and can choose which design and construction method they prefer. The final design needs to be considered when developing the fibre ropes, so we will spend some time thinking about how the final piece will look and work as a piece of wearable jewellery. The fastening solution is key to understanding how the fibre ropes need to be made. Hopefully, all our Makers will be inspired to develop amazing pieces. The workshop will be a two part thing, this week we will design the jewellery and make the ropes; next time, we will add the findings and develop additional decoration such as beads or extra fibre.
I'm looking forward to seeing how our Makers approach this  project, they always come up with something new and exciting. I'm particularly looking forward to seeing the colour combinations and blending choices of the group. I'll take some photos and share tomorrow.

Thanks for calling in today.
