I was lucky enough to attend Vicki Mason's Wearable Plants workshop hosted by Craft Victoria this past Saturday and I thought Id share some images and what I made that afternoon. As you know the ladies of hml have gone workshop mad this year (bookbinding, crochet, macramé, weaving, dyeing, concrete casting so far) and I have to say that this was certainly one of the most satisfying.
|So many possibilities!|
Let me say I will never be a jeweller. For want of a better phrase I don't have the 'hands' for it. The attention to detail which jewellers thrive on would drive me crazy. I think that's why I like collecting it, writing about it and of course wearing it. It is a testament to how fantastic a teacher Vicki is that I went away with a pair of very cute made by me rah rah earrings!
|what do you think? cute huh!|
Using waste plastics from the stationery industry and perfectly made findings Vicki elevates humble materials into beautiful things and helped her eager students to do the same. I would actually pay to do this workshop again it was so much fun! RAMONA
