Soldered Specimen Frame

Sunday, December 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Registration ended: Tuesday, December 3

Instructor: Kitty Lawrence

$45 + $5 materials fee

Event Navigation

Materials saved from the landfill:
glass

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 and grinder 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 bring in broken glass pieces and pressed plants to use in your frame. You will leave with at least one specimen frame, and may take advantage of Community Workshop to come back and make more with your new skills!

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.
