Calendar of Events: Soldered Specimen Frames

Event Date: Feb 2, 2019 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Create an upcycled specimen frame from scraps of glass and pressed botanicals! Participants will learn to use recycled glass, copper foil, flux and lead-free solder to sculpt their custom frame. Perennial staff will demonstrate how to safely use a glass cutter and grinder to create custom shapes from found clear glass, and how to preserve plants through pressing. Participants will also learn how to create and attach a custom sized jump ring with chain to hang their frame with. Feel free to bring in broken glass pieces and pressed plants to use in your frame. Note: This class requires hand strength and the use of a very hot tool. Patience, an eye for safety, and hand dexterity will help participants achieve their design goals. Designed for adults only.

Registration ends February 1 at 5 p.m.
