Small Craft Skillshare: Copper Etched Jewelry and Animal Rights Activism

July Small CraftSpend Saturday afternoon making copper etched jewelry and supporting animal rights activism. Also: drinking coffee and tea, enjoying vegan treats, hanging out with friends, and exploring a pop-up shop filled with upcycled craft supplies!

On July 14, Small Craft will host a skillshare with Christine Wagner of  Design Specimen. Christine makes copper etched jewelry as part of a larger practice of animal rights activism, and she’ll be bringing both her techniques and her message to the Trumbullplex.

For a $5 materials fee, you’ll be given everything you need to make an etched copper pendant:

  • A pre-cut and pre-drilled copper disk
  • Pre-printed image transfer (there will be a couple of design options to choose from, crafty and vegan messages)
  • Q-Tips
  • Rubber Gloves
  • Safety Glasses
  • Jump Rings
  • Sandpaper
  • Cording for hanging pendant on
  • How-To Packet

When the skillshare ends, you’ll bring home your own handmade pendant, along with a renewed sense of compassion for animals.

You can pre-register for your spot here.

Christine will also have a small selection of goods for sale.

About trumbullplex

Mission statement circa 1993: We have formed the Trumbullplex; also know as the Wayne Association for Collective Housing, to create a space where we control our own lives. We are a not-for-profit project dedicated to self-sufficiency in all facets of our lives; in our housing, our work, and our energy. We support other projects that share our goals of dismantling racism, sexism, homophobia, and the oppression of poor people through activities in our theater and housing collective. We want to create a positive environment for revolutionary change in which economic and social relationships are based on mutual aid and the absence of hierarchy. Through consensus decision making and full participation in carrying out our decisions, we create the circumstances and expectations for collective empowerment. Ultimately, we strive to realize these goals through respect and constructive communication among ourselves. Theater Collective Mission Statement We partner with the Trumbullplex residents, neighbors, artists, people of conscience, and any potential allies to build a safe space for sharing art and ideas free from oppression.
