March 13 (Friday): Pinterest Unplugged
Friday 3/13/2020 7-9pm
Pinterest UNPLUGGED is the BEST Art Party around! Held on a Friday evening, attendees choose one project to make out of 4 selections. Sign up with friends, siblings, co-workers. A great way to spend quality time, have fun and take home something beautiful that YOU made! To see the variety of projects we've done on previous Pinterest Unplugged nights, go to our Student Gallery.
Feel free to bring snacks and adult drinks to share. We'll have some treats as well.
This month's projects (choose ONE project)
Sterling Silver Bangle Bracelet with Dangle:
This is the first time our new studio mate, Nina Mullin, is teaching at the studio! Nina is a skilled silversmith jeweler and is excited to teach her first Pinterest Unplugged project. You will create a beautiful sterling silver bracelet from 10 gauge sterling wire. Learn to:
- saw, hammer and file sterling wire using jewelers tools
- hammer and texture onto the silver
- make a ball rivet using flame torch
- stamp an initial onto silver blank disc and select a bead or pearl dangle
- form the bracelet over bracelet mandrel
Painted Olive Oil Bottle:
Add a beautiful piece of artwork to your kitchen, or to give as a gift! You will decorate a rectangular olive oil bottle (complete with Stainless Steel pouring spout) using special glass paints. Once heat-set in your oven (we provide instructions), it will be dishwasher safe. All materials, instructions and lots of Pinterest inspiration will be provided!
Fused Glass Jellyfish
Delightful and fun to make! Design your jellyfish using a large assortment of colorful fusing glass, frit and stringers. Then make the trailing "tentacles" with beads and wire. We will kiln fire and drape the 6" circle into a jellyfish shape and attach the tentacles for you. Pick up about a week later.
Mosaic Address Brick:
Choose from a large assortment of colorful glass, mirrors and nuggets. These are distinctive and unique; and SO practical on your front porch!
