I love when I can set aside time to create for a week solid. I recently did that and immersed myself in jewelry making. I created these necklaces using a variety of materials including: T-shirt yarn, colored wire, colored string, big wooden beads, small glass beads and ceramic beads that I made by hand using air dray clay. I am pleased to share that these are for sale locally at Practical Art in Central Phoenix. Here are just a few of my favorites to show examples of what you’ll see.
This workshop will offer up-cycle projects for used t-shirts. Each participant will be invited to bring in worn-out, old, stained, used t-shirts to create personalized projects. Join the fun at The City of Glendale at Westgate Summer Camp for hands-on instruction, supplies included (bring a tee-shirt to create personalized projects)
Have a t-shirt at home that you are ready to toss? Hold onto it for this workshop. Participants will learn how to cut apart used, worn-out, stained or just plane old t-shirts and turn them into all kids of projects including animals, aprons, electronic carrying cases, tote bags, wearable art, yarn and more. Note: The yarn will be transformed into accessory to wear and for room décor. Items will be hand sewn, glued or ironed together.
Each participant will leave with handmade art created out of t-shirts and instructions to continue the creative fun at home. So the good times don’t have to end when the workshop does!
AGES: This workshop is for ages 9 – 14
DATES: Mon. July 29 thru Thurs. Aug 1 (four hours per day)
LOCATION: City of Glendale, Arizona – Westgate Entertainment District
Still a bit wreath crazy this holiday season, I created a wreath out of kraft paper, burlap and t-shirt yarn rosettes. I am going to be so sad when the holidays are over. Can I leave all of my holiday up until June?
Happy crafting xoxo
