This workshop will show you that the materials you use for creative expression can be found – literally – at your feet. You will join noted found-object artist Keith Lo Bue on an energetic exploration of unusual and unexpected materials in jewellery and object making.
You will learn the varied methods of selection and assembly that this limitless palette demands, through hands-on projects and thought-provoking instruction.
No previous metalworking experience is required; all that’s needed is enthusiasm and the desire to work with your hands. Whatever your present focus, you will come away with new insights into the possibilities of your surroundings.
