Make magnets with your own artwork or family photos. These magnets pop out pictures very nicely and make a great small gift for family and friends. Miss Liz will demonstrate several materials that can be used to make artwork that works nicely with this magnet creating technique and participants will be able to pick what they would like to do. If you want to use a photo please bring one that would fit in or can be cut down to a one inch circle. (payment plan eligible)

Alcohol Ink Coasters

These coasters are a beautiful bundle of moving color. Create your own bright swirls of color using our alcohol based inks. Once dry they do not require any glaze on top to shine. Make a set of 4 coasters to give as a gift to family or friends. If you create quickly you may also use our make your own cards station for the remainder of the workshop. (payment plan eligible)

Memory Wire Bracelets (1)
Wednesday, December 22nd @ 2:30 pm   

Grades 5-8

Memory wire bracelets are easy to make and look great! Participants may make a ‘wrap around’ bracelet up to three loops wide, a two loop bracelet + a single loop bracelet, or three single loop bracelets. Miss Liz will have examples of each type and will give tips and tricks on planning out the bracelet so that it fits well. If a participant is not finished with a bracelet they may (within reason) take home some beads to finish the bracelet but they will need a pair of needle nose pliers at home and a quick demonstration on how to ‘end’ the bracelet before they leave. (payment plan eligible)
