Materials saved from the landfill:
Skills you’ll learn:
cutting glass; soldering; copper foil; pressing botanicals
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 to create custom shapes from found clear glass, and how to preserve plants through pressing. Participants will also learn how to create and attach a custom sized jump ring with chain to hang their frame with. Feel free to use your own pressed plants in your frame, or use what we provide. You will make one specimen frame in class.
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.
Cancellation Policy: Perennial reserves the right to cancel, combine, or reschedule classes to adjust for enrollment. If Perennial cancels a class, you may transfer to another class or receive a full refund.
Refund Policy: Notice of withdrawal from a workshop must be made at least 14 days prior to the start of the class. No refunds will be given for withdrawals made after that time. No refunds or credits will be given for classes missed due to illness, personal conflict, or other reasons. There are no exceptions to this policy. Please email email@example.com if you wish to withdraw from a workshop.
Child Participation Policy: Curious about your creative, resourceful kiddo participating in the Perennial mission through a class? Since our classes are geared towards adult beginners, we will assess child participation on a class by class basis. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 314-832-2288 before signing them up. Please note that we cannot accommodate children younger than 12 years old. For children under 16 years of age, both the child and their guardian will need to purchase a ticket and participate in the class together.
