    MemoryWare Workshop

    Community Arts Center

    414 Plush Mill Road, Wallingford, PA 19086
    • Saturday February 24th 2018 at 10:00am to Sunday February 25th 2018 at 5:00pm
    MemoryWare is a folk art tradition practiced by many cultures. It is the art of taking a common object such as a vessel, teapot, or pitcher and covering it with all kinds of materials such as jewelry, beads, buttons and shells. They are often personal objects brought together by a particular theme or memory, or as a tribute to a special person, place or thing. Or just for fun!

    Create a very personal object using your keepsakes. Students will learn how to imbed their possessions onto a vessel - thus giving new life to your broken and discarded treasures. A variation of MemoryWare is to make a jewelry tree from your old family jewelry – an extremely nice way to remember your loved ones and use the jewelry that you’ll never wear but can’t bear to part with. In our workshop you will also learn the pique assiette method of mosaic – using broken china and plates. You will learn how to break and nip your special plates for use in your project.

    $10 materials fee payable to instructor.
    $170 - $180
