Join our virtual jewelry-making workshop that focuses on using reclaimed materials (aka fabric scraps)! Facilitated by Andrea Tsang Jackson of 3rd Story Workshop and members of the DESIGNwith team, this hands-on online workshop will teach you traditional craft techniques to make a custom necklace using hand sewing skills.

During this workshop, you will learn from Rafia, a member of the Regent Park Sewing Studio in Toronto, who co-designed the jewelry piece with the DESIGNwith lab. This workshop is perfect for makers who want to enhance their skills by learning new techniques and gaining insights into sustainable design. You will leave with a beautiful and unique piece of jewelry to wear or give as a gift. So, join us for an opportunity to participate in the circular economy by connecting with the community through making, material reuse, and knowledge sharing!

This livestream workshop will use the Zoom platform. Access link, supply list and preparation instructions provided upon registration. Participants will need to prepare and piece fabrics before the workshop.

Recording of tutorial sections of the workshop will be available for 2 weeks after the event.

Skill level: Appropriate for confident beginners and intermediate sewists. If you've made at least one quilt and can hand-sew a teeny bit, this will be great for you!
