Make bold statement jewelry with Tiny Messy in this Craft Lake City workshop at this year’s DIY Festival! Bianca Velasquez (aka Tiny Messy) is a local musician, editor and artisan who creates colorful jewelry and items for the home from resin. She also posts weekly craft tutorial videos and life hacks on her Youtube channel! In this workshop, Velasquez will provide a basic introduction to making resin earrings, guiding attendees through the process of mixing and molding the material into wearable works of art. This workshop will be a three-step process in which you will learn how to mix color, pour resin and assemble your earrings using a silicone cacti-shaped mold. Participants will create fun, funky, and colorful cactus jewelry! All materials & safety equipment will be provided.
