Thursday, March 5 from 4-6. In partnership with our neighbors at the Shelton McMurphy Johnson House and led by Karen Rainsong, MECCA is hosting a Steampunk Jewelry Making Workshop. Instruction and tools provided. $5 suggested donation.
Saturday, March 7 from 4-6. Learn how to create custom bags out of leather and how to source reclaimed and reusable leather for a variety of creations. This leather working demo is led by artist Summerlake and includes tools, materials, and instruction. Donations Appreciated.
Our eclectic collection of "junk" provides an abundant resource for all manner of creative endeavor. At a MECCA workshop, you might learn to make scarves out of fleece scraps, weave baskets out of telephone wire, turn Altoids tins into pocket shrines, or forge jewelry out of bottle caps.
By encouraging the creative reuse of scraps and discards, MECCA offers a low-cost and environmentally friendly way for people to express themselves artistically.
