Polymer Clay Necklace Workshop with OF the PROCESS

Creating something by hand is incredibly satisfying.  Getting complements on your handmade necklace is even more satisfying!

Join OF the PROCESS owner, designer, and maker, Julie Lowry, in a polymer clay necklace workshop at the warehouse 11/23 from 7-10pm.  In this workshop you will be creating your very own necklace to take home as well as learning some fun polymer clay techniques, sipping on some alcoholic beverages, and eating some yummy treats!

All supplies included.  Your pieces will be fired that night, so we're offering you a special 20%
discount on all retail items (this means the stuff at the front of the warehouse with price tags) so you can shop while you wait.  You can assemble your necklace once everything has cooled.

There are only 10 seats available for the workshop, so don't delay! Earlybird tickets are $45 until 8 pm 11/19.  ($50 after). Buy HERE.

**** ALSO ****  OF the PROCESS jewelry will be 25% off for participants at the workshop. Yessss!!!

Looking forward to making some necklaces with you!! 

Natural Holiday Wreath Workshop with Aurora Botanica

In this workshop with Aurora Botanica we will learn how to create lush, durable and fragrant natural wreaths using different textures from the earth such as moss, pine, berries, cedar, dried flowers and more. 

Rawan is very experienced in many forms of floral and plant arranging so we will also learn how to create an expressive form, keeping an organic structure to the wreath.  This adds a little more beauty than just a classic wreath.  And you can use these skills when making other arrangements in the future.  

Wreaths make beautiful gifts during the holiday season but are also great for your own home.  They will add a beautiful woodsy fragrance to your home throughout the season. 

November 19th,  7 - 9 pm
Dusty Rose, 251 Greenpoint Ave

All supplies and refreshments included.  
Tickets: $100 HERE

Hope to see you there!

Learn The art of Sashiko with Gina Rockenwagner

I first found Gina Rockenwagner because of some insanely unique and gorgeous quilts I saw on Instagram.   I knew we had to collaborate in some way.  She has a whole arsenal of skills, but we finally settled on one we think you'll all love.  Sashiko, a Japanese quilting and embroidery technique, makes great wall art, pillow covers, quilts, and most importantly, it's a beautiful way to mend your denim.  

We will cover the following techniques:
Basic Sashiko techniques, appliqué, reverse appliqué, other fun embroidery stitches, as well as simple finishing techniques to turn your patchwork piece into a trivet, pillow or wall hanging. Or, get ambitious and make a quilt! We will cover all you need to know to make your Sashiko dreams come true.

All materials will be provided (denim and fabric to make a trivet, fabric marking pens, needles, thread) along with wine and drinks!  Also, feel free to bring your own denim that needs mending.

Make a Talisman Pendant with Amelia Brooklyn

Come to the Dusty Rose Vintage Warehouse and create a custom talisman necklace with Amelia Brooklyn. 

Imagery and symbols often hold special meaning. They can empower, inspire, remind, protect. Talismans are ways to carry these "power symbols" with us at all times.

In this workshop we'll discuss the meanings of some popular symbols and then make talisman pendants in porcelain by engraving and underglazing.

All materials (clay,underglaze, tools, jewelry findings) will be provided. 

Also provided: adult beverages, crystals and other embellishments to further personalize the necklaces.

Pendants will be fired after class, and participants can arrange to pick up or ship the finished pieces.
