CLASS FULL Soldered Specimen Frame

Instructor: Theresa Hitchcock

March 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Cost: $45 + $5 materials fee


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 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.
