Join Adelaide jeweller Katrina Freene for a fabulous a necklace-making workshop using upcycled souvenir tin-wear.
As part of the current exhibition Greetings from…the power of souvenirs, the Migration Museum is offering a series of workshops to upcycle souvenirs into things you will want to use. Adelaide-based designer Katrina Freene makes limited edition earrings, brooches and necklaces from recycled tin trays. A little bit retro and a little bit Australiana, Freene designs are heavily influenced by her passion for sustainable jewellery as well as memories of her childhood. The tin trays she uses are an op shop staple, often passed over for being unbearably kitschy. On a large, tea-tray-sized scale this is often true, but the colourful motifs really shine as smaller bits of wearable art.
For this workshop you will be able to choose whichever precut pieces of souvenir tin-wear catch your eye. You will then by guided by jeweller Katrina Freene to arrange them however you please. At the end of the workshop you will be take home a beautiful bespoke necklace of your own design ready to wear.
The workshop includes a curator’s tour of the Greetings from…the power of souvenirs exhibition so you can get inspired by souvenirs, unbearably kitschy or otherwise! Afternoon tea will also be served as part of this workshop.
Please note: Therefore this event is limited to people aged over 16 years-old. No jewellery-making experience is necessary.
