In this workshop, we will unlock the secrets of found objects and journey through the world of mixed media to create unique and personal works of wearable art and vintage storybooks. During the week students will learn numerous techniques for working with found objects including how to age metal and paper, soldering, metal etching, inking, dying, rusting, attachments as well as some tricks to working with found objects.
You will leave the week with at least one found object bracelet or necklace, an etched booklace and a vintage book, allowing you to practice all of the techniques covered. Jen will work with individuals on personal projects towards the end of the week, incorporating the techniques learnt. No prior experience is required.
