Make your own bird earrings

Spring would not be spring without bird songs

14 Apr 2013

During Bird Sunday you can learn the basics of being a goldsmith: work with silver and go home with a pair of homemade earrings. Create a beautiful pair of swallows for your ears or choose another silhouet of birds. The workshop costs 27,50 including materials and will take about 2,5 hours.


Fools Gold - The workshop area prepared for the first Fools Gold workshop in the Freezing Favela

With: Fools Gold!

Freezing Favela

Freezing Favela is a temporary city at Mediamatic Fabriek. The Fabriek is situated in the Van Gendthallen on Oostenburg, Amsterdam. The space is big, unheated, and the roof leaks. Designers, cooks and other makers have been given the possibility to claim part of this space as their own. They work autonomously from their workshop- or project space, but like in any other community, materials, space, and functions have to be shared. Favela citizens are making tosti's from scratch, paper from cow dung, furniture from cardboard, and food from our aquaponics farm. They give workshops, organize get-togethers, and serve food.
