NHMU and the University of Utah are taking proactive steps to keep our community safe during the spread of coronavirus. For that reason, all upcoming NHMU Craft Workshops and other programming have been cancelled. Learn more. If this event is rescheduled to return at a later date, this page will be updated when those details become available.
About this workshop:
In this NHMU Craft Workshop presented by Craft Lake City, local artisan Heather Leeflang of H Works Jewelry will introduce attendees to metal scribing. Attendees will inscribe constellations onto copper and brass discs, and then hand score the patterns to create personalized charms. After the constellation designs are complete, the charms will be attached to a silver chain to create a necklace to wear or share. Materials will be provided and no experience is necessary.
About the artist
Heather Leeflang’s jewelry is designed to present complex ideas reduced to their most minimal forms – jewelry that is unadorned in its aesthetic. Throughout her life she has used jewelry as a way of communicating things about herself to the world, and she enjoys offering her work to others who connect to jewelry in the same way.
Presented by Craft Lake City and the Natural History Museum of Utah.
