In this workshop, participants will learn to cut up, twist, and turn old bicycle inner tubes to make unique, stylish, and environmentally friendly jewellery.
Workshop tutor Barbara will teach participants how to safely cut and use the pieces to make two pairs of earrings and a cuff bracelet. Attendees will learn some basic jewellery-making skills to put their designs together.
This fun and eco-friendly class will be led by Barbara Niglio. Barbara has worked in the fashion industry and has taught in the fashion discipline at Box Hill Institute for many years. She has developed a love for repurposing items and all things sustainable. Unusual waste materials are often used in wearable art pieces and these have been featured in her exhibitions. Teaching skills and encouraging creativity to class participants gives Barbara a deep satisfaction as she endeavours to pass on the creative vibe and sense of achievement and wellbeing that goes along with it.
