These workshops have been created to give you the opportunity to make with your own hands. You may surprise yourself with your creativity, discover something new, or meet a lovely person. Some say these workshops are relaxing, others say they’ve learned a new skill set. Regardless of what you take from it, you’ll walk away with some things to take home—objects you’ve created yourself!
ACRYLIC EARRING WORKSHOP
Be your own garden, by making your own plant pal earrings. Petals, flowers, leaves, vines, pots and plants are laser engraved and cut into acrylic pieces, in a variety of acrylic materials. Pastel colours, shiny mirrors, iridescent shimmer and translucent engraved pieces are curated for you to choose from. You’ll customise the acrylic pieces with paint, make, and layer in the way you want to make dainty studs or large statement earrings.
Whether you’re an earring lover or maker, you’ll learn new skills of paint filling engraving, arranging pieces and laying out designs to form balanced statement earrings.
Thursday April 4 • 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm • Tickets $110
Work-Shop Melbourne - 195 Argyle Street, Fitzroy
About your workshop host, Alex—
Hey, I’m Alex. I’m a laser cutting designer and host creative events. I love live music, spreadsheets, specialty coffee, Galaga, typography and architecture.
I love creating workshops and experiences for people to connect with their creativity and gain skills making with their hands. I’ve been teaching craft workshops from card making, invitation making and scrapbooking since I was 12. Now my designs are stocked in stores, and more than 100 people have attended these earring making workshops around Australia.
Don’t think of yourself as crafty or creative? It’ll be awesome to make something with your own hands and prove to yourself you are creative — everyone has it in them. I have heaps of inspiration to share with you during the workshop, so don’t fret!
Not an earring wearer? I’ll have brooch making workshops in the future. Keep an eye out.
I’m coming to the workshop by myself, will that be weird? Not at all, there’s been more people fly solo than not. It’s safe to say you’ll enjoy yourself, and may make a new friend. I’m also there, and I’m pretty chatty and friendly.
