MAD Atelier: Wound Paper Beads

Tue, May 4 / 7–9 pm ET

Join MAD’s 2015 artist-in-residence Amy Lemaire for an online intensive jewelry workshop inspired by Amy’s wearable glass sculptures. Using a variety of recycled and specialty papers, participants will explore making large paper beads. Paper beads are a great way to make lightweight statement jewelry from paper that has sentimental value or interesting aesthetic qualities. Amy will also share some of her glass jewelry that inspired the bold shapes of her paper beads. The intensive workshop is for ages 18 and up and for all skill levels. Enrollment is limited to 25 participants.

Sign up for all three MAD Atelier workshops!
