Digital Drop-in: Jewelry-Making with Wire

Tue, Apr 13 / 7–7:45 pm

Sign on for a live artist-led tutorial on experimenting with craft and design processes. During this fun and informal workshop, MAD About Jewelry and Artist Studios alum Mia Hebib of Oblik Atelier will introduce basic jewelry tools and simple techniques to guide participants through playful jewelry-making. The workshop will be an exercise for the hands and mind, in which participants will transform drawings and doodles into wearable jewelry.

MAD’s Digital Drop-ins are for participants of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels. Following the demonstration, participants will have time to independently work on their project and share with “neighbors” in the virtual class.

All Digital Drop-ins are 45 minutes. Registrants will receive an email 24 hours in advance of the program with instructions for accessing the workshop on Zoom. 

SUGGESTED MATERIALS:

  • Wire (such as brass, copper, or silver wire; 14ga or 16ga brass wire recommended)
  • Wire cutters
  • Round nose pliers
  • Pair of ear hooks
  • Small sheet of 320 sandpaper
  • OPTIONAL: Order a kit of all the materials above from our friends at Brooklyn Metal Works.
