Zoom workshop, Tuesday 6th April 2021,10:30am - 12:00pm
Make your own lockets using materials from around the house, shed or recycling box. The results may end up becoming a gift for someone you can't wait to spend time with again, or something to wear round your own neck so keep someone close to you. We will try 3 different methods, so don't worry if you can't find all the materials!
Suitable for 9-13 year olds, this is a great opportunity for younger artists to build on their skills, becoming more dexterous with materials and fiddly components.
You will need:
- two or three really small printed photos (could be printed on paper)*
- bottle-top with a clip flip lid (e.g. washing up liquid bottle lid)
- Lengths of thin ribbon long enough to go round neck and hang down
- beads, sequins, any tiny decorative bits
- a needle that will go through the beads & ribbon will thread onto
- 2 of the largest washers you can find (see e.g. here)
- 2 metal bottle caps (e.g. from glass beer or coke bottles)
- 1 piece of white card
- Strong glue - only to be used with adult supervision (hot glue-gun is best)
- Acrylic paint - not essential
*the faces or figures in the photos need to fit approximately a £2 coin size.
By booking this class, you understand that it will run as a digital class via Zoom. (The Zoom link and password will be sent to you at least the day before the workshop)
