SALT LAKE CITY – Craft Lake City is excited to announce the April 2013 West Elm DIY Workshop, Glassware Charms with Stacey Rabiger of Ker-ij Jewelry.
West Elm, a home furnishings retailer known for
helping customers find their personal style at home, initially teamed up
with Craft Lake City last fall to celebrate the opening of their first
store in Utah at City Creek Center. Through this partnership, Craft Lake
City and West Elm are continuing to develop DIY workshops in the store
that allow artisans affiliated with Craft Lake City to demonstrate their
skills to West Elm customers. The next class will be held on April 25
and will be lead by CLC artist Stacey Rabiger of Ker-ij Jewelry.
Rabiger will be teaching workshop participants how to create a
glassware charm that can be added to the stem of their champagne or wine
glass. Have you ever set your wine glass down at a party, turned around
and found another glass sitting next to it? Identifying which glass is
yours is sometimes impossible, thus, the purpose of the glassware charm.
Participants will learn to make their own charm and leave knowing how to make many more for friends and parties.
will guide workshop participants through each step of creating and
customizing their charm. Participants will be given a glass from one of
West Elm’s stemware collections to add their charm to. To help highlight
West Elm’s April Color Crush, Watermelon, the workshop will conclude
with a toast to spring, featuring Frida Bistro and Rico Catering’s
exclusive Watermelon Juice.
The workshop will be held Thursday, April 25 from 7 to 9 p.m. There
is a $10 materials fee, participants can pre-register on Skillshare via http://skl.sh/146zvhl.
