Another fun project for up-cycling wine bottles: Citronella torches for backyard & camp using copper hardware. Pretty!
We're going a step beyond the basic look with a variety of backer boards plus copper wire and metal charms & beads to add some personality to your pieces too. We'll make two torches in this workshop, then send you home with a parts-list to easily make many more of your own. (You can also buy part kits from us any time; we are adding these to the store's craft shelf this spring.)
We have plenty of wine bottles, but feel free to bring your own if you have favorites. Any glass bottle with a ~1-inch neck (3/4 inner diameter) will work.
Where & When
2290 West Broadway in Idaho Falls
(Next to Rocknaks Hardware, west I.F.)
Thursday, May 7th
6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
What to Expect
This is an easy craft for ages 12 to 112. (Must be 21 to drink alcohol.) We will provide all the pieces required. You'll choose and stain your backer boards to your taste, assemble your hardware, attach them to the backers, install your bottles, and adorn them with a bit of craft wire and charms.
We are working on setting up a 5-flavor wine tasting. As usual, you can instead order two of any other drink served in The Hollow without or with alcohol, including wines, beers, ciders, Cutwater, White Claw, Jackson Hole sodas, Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Cream Soda, coffee, tea, or Perrier. More may be purchased. We also often have munchies available, and you can bring your own too.
Tools to Be Used (Provided)
Tools You Need to Bring
Attendees must be 12+ years for this workshop (all workshops are different). Ladies younger than 18 must be accompanied by a legal adult. No children under age 12 may be present in the workshop for this class.
Capacity is limited to 28 attendees for this workshop. We will work in the Bear & Blue space, which is a working creative studio run by a manic artist. So please do not expect a clean, sterile environment. You will be surrounded by works-in-progress for the manufacturing side of the business. We recommend wearing comfy clothes and shoes. Stains are possible with certain projects!
Overflow parking is welcome next door at Rocknak's Hardware during our evening events. You can access our entrance via the patio or front bridge. Watch your step! There's always something under construction around here.
