Intro
In this workshop Melissa Cameron will guide students in the adaptive reuse of repurposed objects for the creation of wearable jewelry. Students will learn to re-create the shapes and designs of found objects in their own uniquely fabricated, wearable artwork.
A metalsmith and interior architect, Melissa Cameron uses recycled objects to make one-off works that explore spatial forms through geometric patterns. In this two-day workshop, offered in partnership with Construction Junction and Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse, she will guide students in the adaptive reuse of repurposed objects for the creation of wearable jewelry. Students will learn the skills of drilling and saw piercing to re-create the shapes and designs of their chosen found objects in their own uniquely fabricated, wearable artwork.
