Learn how to make your own jewelry from real flowers in this fun and creative workshop! You'll choose from hundreds of unique botanicals (many of which I've gathered and pressed/dried myself) for your uniquely beautiful pieces. By the end of our class, you will know how to: - design jewelry with preserved botanicals - mix, pour, and work with resin - cure your resin pendants -understand how to attach resin pendants onto finished jewelry (resin takes 24-hours to cure and we offer the option to select one of our pre-cured resin pieces to learn the process of jewelry assembly for one of your pieces.) **Please note that resin is a special material that takes 24-hours to transform into beautifully cured pendants. We offer complimentary first-class shipping to any address in the United States. International shipping is available at an additional charge. I also offer itineraries for team building, birthday parties and corporate events. Feel free to reach out if you’re interested! At the end of class, you will have created two custom pieces of botanical jewelry, all 100% uniquely yours! Your pieces will come with complimentary stainless steel hardware. Upgrades to brass, sterling silver, 14K gold plated, rose gold plated, and 14K gold filled are available for an additional charge.
My name is Sam and I'm a collage artist who has been experimenting with found objects for 10 years. I run Oddflower Studio, a small resin casting studio in West Oakland. IG: @oddflowerstudio I teach my guests how to create beautiful, functional art from seemingly ordinary objects. Most of the flowers and plants in my studio have been locally sourced and hand-pressed or dried in-house.
During our class, we will be working in my private, plant-filled, sun-drenched studio in West Oakland's warehouse district -- home to many other artists and craftspeople. The space includes ample seating and space to learn, chat, and enjoy our refreshments in.
