Join us for Celebration Vessels with Suzanne Marinelli

Take shining metal ribbons, some colorful electrical wire, a few strips of pretty cloth, and your delightful imagination. Put them all together to create a handmade vessel like no other. Celebrate!

The aluminum ribbon in various metallic colors will provide your vessel’s structure with its stiff strips woven into the simplest of patterns. Turn back the sharp edges with needle-nose pliers to form softened shapes. Weave soft strips of cloth in and out through the ribbons in colors you've chosen. Secure with wires wound through the gaps and spaces. Tie a few knots, tuck in a corner here and there, and then stand back to admire what only you have ever created. It will be beautiful!

This class is appropriate for any skill level. All materials will be provided. There will be a $25 supply fee paid to the instructor on the day of class.

What to bring:

  • $25 supply fee 
  • Needle-nose pliers (if you have them)
