This class will be held at Castle In The Air, Berkeley, CA.
Reliquaries are boxes or charms that protect and preserve small mementos. You'll create your own personal one during this two-day class, either reminiscent of ages past or cast in your own style. Ulla will teach you the basic skills necessary: how to cut and construct a miniature box in different shapes, how to use decorative copper edging, how to add tiny trinkets and beads, and how to solder. Size your reliquary to be worn on a necklace or as a brooch, or make it larger to safeguard a treasured item. Each box will contain a special object, vignette, or paper whimsy.
Fee: $175; includes materials, but feel free to bring your own small treasures and ephemera.
Instructor: Ulla Milbrath. Limit: 8 students.
Two Days: June 23, Saturday, 10am–4pm, & June 24, Sunday, 11am–5pm
