Event Overview

Create an upcycled specimen frame from scraps of glass and pressed botanicals! Participants will learn to use recycled glass, copper foil, flux and lead-free solder to sculpt their custom frame. Perennial staff will demonstrate how to safely use a glass cutter and grinder to create custom shapes from found clear glass, and how to preserve plants through pressing. Particpants will also learn how to create and attach a custom sized jump ring with chain to hang their frame with. Feel free to bring in broken glass pieces and pressed plants to use in your frame. Note: This class requires hand strength and the use of a very hot tool. Patience, an eye for safety, and hand dexterity will help participants achieve their design goals.

    This class was great fun! Skills learned are glass cutting and grinding to smooth corners and edges, soldering, learning to attach a chain to your two-piece frame for hanging, and your finished frame holds a pressed flower, greenery, or both. The best part is that I learned the skills needed to make more! I highly recommend this class!
