I will send the picture of the Saturday all day class as soon I get it, the class description is pretty detailed.
Friday, June 21st
3:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Tell a story or share a memory with a story bottle. Adorn a solder trimmed bottle with waxed lace, vintage ribbons, vintage jewelry, watch parts, keys, hardware and anything else you may have. With your kit you will get the solder trimmed bottle, doily, ribbon, vintage book shred, lavender seed, a few trims, wire and use of images, wax, wire and rusty screen. You can also choose to solder trim an additional bottle to take home. Vintage knobs, jewelry and found objects will be available for sale, but you are welcome to bring your own.
Example, make a bottle memory of Grandma:
Print off an image that we can suspend in the bottle, bring any items of jewelry, fabric or small memorabilia that can make your bottle personal.
Bottle soldering, wax working, transforming found and vintage objects into bottle trims.
Soldered bottle, blank bottle, foil, solder, doily, rusty screen, ribbon, paper shred, wax, wire, misc. chain and a few trims. Soldering iron to share.
