This is Amy's class description: " 'Forgotten Treasures' Come spend the day with me playing in velvet boxes and old cigar containers where we will find new life in forgotten treasures. Bring your Granmere's jewelry box with old broken jewelry bits and bobs. Favorite old tintype photos even if they are not your family's, favorite religious relics, rosaries and medals. Your favorite uncle's watch fobs, keepsakes from a trip to a faraway place. Smashed coins from a machine or one that you placed under the railroad tracks yourself. Bring the things that you feel are special. We all have a different meaning for "treasure" so do not be afraid to bring whatever speaks to you and we will work with it. I will teach you how to wire wrap and to oxidize to bead and to use your imagination to build jewels out of things you would not think of using. I will also teach you to solder. I am looking forward to meeting you and hearing your story. " Sounds great, doesn't it?
The venue for all of this fun is at a new and very hip hotel in Holland, Michigan called City Flats Hotel. Holland is home to many great new shops and restaurants, and you can still buy wooden clogs here! This looks like something I have to sign up for.
