Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Shawl pins are a personal expression and an extension of the long hours it takes us to complete our handwork. 

This workshop will focus on three different traditional pin styles in recycled copper that offer very different closure options.  We will embellish our recycled copper base pins with flexible handspun wirecore yarn for a colorful accent. The humble shawl stick, the versatile fibula (a safety pin style,) and the graceful penannular brooch (a circular shape with a small break in it) will all be explored. 

Light hammering, texturing, and forming with the addition of handspun yarn and a simple aged patina will be combined to create custom pins to secure everything from the most delicate lace to the coziest bulky shawl. 

Level of experience: none

Materials Provided by Instructor: all materials and  tools for students use - recycled copper wire in various gauges, various found objects, beads, and other materials for accents

Materials Provided by StudentOPTIONAL: any special beads or found objects you may want to incorporate. not all will be able to be used but we can do our best to problem solve!
