Whilst doing some research on twitter the other day I discovered a fabulous Liverpool based company who offer “alternative social experiences” and are currently running a variety of creative workshops held in stylish locations across Liverpool City Centre. They keep an eye on the season’s hottest trends and teach us how to make it ourselves. Their aim is to bring craft into the 21st century and recycle unwanted items into must have accessories.
Craft Creative’s next event on Wednesday 27th July will see them teaming up with Liverpool company Alula jewellery for a jewellery making workshop where you can design and make your own beautiful unique pieces of jewellery. In this workshop the lovely expert from http://www.alulajewellery.co.uk/ will teach you different techniques to create earrings and a very 'on trend' suede headband (see picture). You can choose from a variety of material, including beads and feathers. You may also take any broken jewellery you may have and they’ll help you experience upclycling, repairing and reviving old jewellery to incorporate it into your designs.
The event will be held at one of discofashionarts favourite Liverpool hangouts Leaf on Bold Street, which just adds to the treat….
All materials included plus an instruction for you to take home. No previous jewellery making experience required.
TICKETS £12 PER PERSON
Go to http://www.craftcreative.co.uk/ for more details and booking….. I know I will be after taking a look at Alula’s designs. Most of the pieces are made from ‘cruelty free’ feathers which are naturally malted. Alua uses a variety of feathers from birds including Peacock, Guinea Fowl, Magpie, Jay, Mallard, Golden Pheasant, Lady Amherst's Pheasant, Common Pheasant, Silver Pheasant, Flamingo, African Grey Parrot, Blue-and-yellow Macaw,Falcon, Eagle Owl, Scarlet Macaw, Amazon Parrot, Moluccan Cockatoo, Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo and Parakeet. As you can see from the pictures below the pieces are fab, so get booking and see what you can make!
