Level: all

Turn a plain bottle into a doll, necklace or vessel for keepsakes.   Robin will show you fun and creative applications using wax, wire, assemblage, collage, solder, fibers, buttons, rusted metal, broken ceramic and doll parts .  We will cover your bottle with salvaged, repurposed and new ephemera and turn it into a unique conversation piece.  You should be able to finish 1-3 bottles.   If time allows, we will learn how to paint a simple rose onto your chosen surface.   Robin will supply one small bottle for each student, beeswax, wire, soldering iron, paint, melting pot, cheesecloth and expendables
