Paper Bead Jewellery

Adult 16yrs + Venue -  Surrey Art School, Dean House Farm, RH5 5DL

Sunday 17th March 2019

10 am - 1pm  £55

An introduction to the calming meditative process of creating hand rolled paper beads. Being mindful of waste, we'll use a variety of discarded papers and create your very own piece of up-cycled jewellery. Ginny will show you how to choose, prepare, roll and secure the paper as you create some oval beads to practice the process. Once you feel confident, she will guide you in exploring some more complex bead shapes. Using this newly learned skill you will then, with Ginny's support, design either a necklace, bracelet or earrings. Ginny will help you choose or create painted papers inspired by your favourite colours or chosen theme and support you to create your own unique piece of wearable art. You will also learn a clever simple stringing technique and how to create a button and loop fastening to finish your piece.

All materials are included but please feel free to bring any papers / maps, old books or old broken jewellery that you may like to add to your creation.
