Create a little piece of nature art to carry around with you! In this one-day workshop you’ll learn how to wind wire and beads into a little nest. No experience necessary. This can be a good first project because the goal is creating irregular shapes. You don’t see a neatly engineered nest in the wild do you? You’ll be encouraged to let loose and get in touch with your inner messy artist!
You will leave withat least 1 completed pendant. Quick workers may have time to make a 2nd. All tools and materials will be provided, but feel free to bring along any tools or beads (choose something small that might work as bird’s eggs) you already own. We’ll do our best to incorporate them in your piece.
