Earth Week workshop! Recycled paper jewelry. Check back for more eco friendly workshops and events this week.
Join Orillia artist Gayle Schofield for a fun afternoon crafting jewelry from paper. Gayle will show you her coiled paper method of rolling newsprint into coils and transforming those coils into unique, eco friendly wearable art that is as functional as it is beautiful.
Please note that although you do not require any experience to participate in this workshop, you will be using a small tool and repetitive small movements with your hands.
