Wearable Paper Jewelry

with Azania Tripp
Thursday, September 29; 6–8pm CT

Create your own one-of-a-kind wearable jewelry piece with paper! In this in-person workshop, learn to design pins, earrings, and pendants out of recycled magazine paper. Participants will select birchwood shapes (circles, triangles, and squares of varying sizes) to be used as a base for collage. Then, they’ll paste down paper designs cut with scissors, exacto knives, and hole punching tools. After the workshop, the teaching artist will complete the pieces with sterling silver attachments and seal the art with resin for longevity, which takes about two weeks. Participants can return to pick up their jewelry at the Shop at MCBA starting Saturday, 10/15.

All skill levels welcome
