Get Crafty Upcycling Workshop

Well looks like I have another workshop coming up! Hope you'll join me! It's June 15th from 1pm to 3pm at the Capilano Branch of the North Vancouver District Library. I'm pumped!

Love how serendipitous life is right now... So many kewl things seem to just pop up. The talk through the Craft Council of BC last month and then the upcoming Culture Days National Congress on May 23 and 24 in Toronto and now another upcycling workshop. Super yay!

I was mulling over materials and ideas... And a title. I'm calling it 'Get Crafty Upcycling Workshop'. Materials will include old wool sweaters, remnant buttons and junky jewelry. And what will we make?! Tons of stuff!

I need to work on some projects this weekend prior to Toronto and Cuba. So gosh darn it I'm making a creature out of an old wool sweater and buttons. Then a brooch, barrettes, bracelet and more! I need a range of projects for all ages and all levels. I figure those will get me started!

And thankfully I've started finding nifty things to repurpose! Found some swanky necklaces to relove. On the left is the necklace from the Eastside Flea Market for $5 and on the right is a necklace from the Lions Gate Thrift Store for $2.



The beads are super cute and perfect for some barrettes or the center of a brooch. Who knows!



I'll post my workshop projects as I finish them up. Happy crafting!
