Upcycled Jewelry Class w Emily O’Hara

In keeping with the founding principle of making the planet a more sustainable place, Makers Mill offers a fun and creative small step toward reducing the landfills: a lively class in making “Upcycled Jewelry” – the art of converting trash to treasures.

On June 3, 2023, join in for a fun and energetic day, where you will learn to create colorful and imaginative pieces of jewelry to wear or give as gifts.  Using recycled materials otherwise destined for a landfill, such as aluminum cans, bits of wire, and beads, you will create colorful imaginative earrings, bracelets, necklaces, brooch pins, barrettes, bouquets, or other works of art. The only limit is your imagination. Go home with several finished pieces to show your friends! Materials will be provided or you can also bring your recycled aluminum cans and other bits and bobs you’ve been saving for such an occasion. The class will run from 10am to 4pm and costs $90 for members and  $115 for non-members.

This class is open to ages 13 plus.  A limited number of scholarships are available for youth aged 13 – 17.  For more information about these contact Carol Holyoake, Director of Programs & Events – carol@makersmill.org
