Syracuse Public Library — Fixing Broken Jewelry – InkFreeNews.com
Syracuse — Broken jewels lurking around your home? Forgotten items hidden in dusty drawers?
This is your chance to learn basic jewelry repairs and actually wear them again. The Syracuse Public Library will host a jewelry repair clinic on Wednesday, May 17th at 4:00pm.
Please bring your damaged jewelry to the meeting room downstairs. The library is equipped with basic tools and limited repair supplies needed. Sherry Kruger and Becky Brower teach the class, and participants come home with skills to repair jewelry and fix future breakages.
Also, mark your calendars for May’s second repair clinic, an all-ages smartphone photography clinic. Emilia Rain teaches participants how to take great photos with their smartphones and how to use apps to fix photos that don’t quite clear the hurdles. The clinic will be held on Tuesday, May 23rd at 5:30pm in the conference room downstairs.
Writers of all skill levels and genres are invited to attend Workshop, SPL’s adult writing group, on Tuesday, May 16 at 1:00 PM in the conference room downstairs.
