September DIY Workshop @ West Elm and Craft Lake City (9/19 SLC)

West Elm and Craft Lake City Announce the September DIY Workshop at West Elm Salt Lake City: Beaded Flower Napkin Rings with Mïa Vollkommer on September 19
SALT LAKE CITY, Tuesday, September 17 – Craft Lake City and West Elm continue their partnership with the September installment of the West Elm and Craft Lake City DIY Workshop Series. The September workshop will feature Mïa Vollkommer who will be teaching workshop participants how to make beaded flower napkin rings. The workshop will be held on September 19 from 7 to 9 p.m. at West Elm in City Creek Center.
West Elm, a home furnishings retailer who helps and engages customers to shape their personal style in their homes, will host the fourth class of the West Elm and Craft Lake City DIY Workshop Series. They continue their partnership with Craft Lake City, and their mutual goal is to compel participants of all skillsets to indulge in their creative sides to produce art and stylized home accoutrements.
Vollkommer will be teaching workshop participants how to use glass beads and a weaving technique popularized in Asia, to make a three-dimensional ring in the shape of a pedaled flower. Participants will leave with their very own ring, and the knowledge to make many more. No beading experience is necessary.
Registration for the workshop is currently open. There is a $10 materials fee for this workshop, pre-registration is required, which can be done at this link: http://skl.sh/1aoCsf7. West Elm Salt Lake City is located in City Creek Center at 51 S. Main Street.
