GET SCHOOLED: Frankenjewelry Workshop at The Knit Cafe (August 7)


Thursday August 7, 7-10pm.

The Knit Cafe
1050 Queen St. West
, On. M6J 1H7
416 533 5648

Bring in your old jewelry, wire, chains, and chachkas, buttons, ribbon, toys,
and fabrics, beads, badges, bows and bobbles, and reconfigure them into
wearable works of art. Onsite will be jewelry guidance counselors, with
direction and inspiration. We will be on hand to show you simple techniques for
joining pieces, and stringing beads. Wooly additions are encouraged and there
will be instruction on how to make felt beads, pom poms, knitted flowers,
crocheted gizmos and tassels galore. Possible creations include collars, cuffs,
necklaces, chapeaux, earrings, and brooches. Outcomes are only limited to
imaginations and therefore UNLIMITED!

Knitting experience is unnecessary! Just drop in any time between 7pm and 10pm,
to make and create. Remember to bring in your stashed materials, with a little
extra to share and trade.

Only $5

Props to Julia Burton for bringing her Frankenjewelry extravaganza to the Knit
Café! Hope you all can make it.
