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 funÂ atÂ The City of Glendale at Westgate Summer Camp for hands-on instruction, supplies includedÂ (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 dÃ©cor. 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 donâ€™t have to end when the workshop does!
AGES:Â 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
