Acrylic Earring Workshop: Native Florals

Learn how to make acrylic earrings with Lazer Unicorn



3 hours Class size 1 to 30 label $130


In-person classes are permitted in Queensland, under the state government's guidelines

Your host, Work-Shop is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

Love native flora and fauna? Love earrings? Native florals are beautiful in acrylic, complemented by the dusty tones and earthy colours. In this workshop, you’ll create four pairs of beautiful earring made from laser-cut acrylic, customised by you.

This workshop features hand-drawn illustrations of flora engraved into acrylic and wood – protea flowers, gum nuts, leaves, moths, bottle brushes and many other flora to choose from. My friend and illustrator Gabrielle Slater and I designed this workshop to share our love of native flowers with you all, and we are beyond ecstatic at how each workshop guest has created a beautiful earring arrangement.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

  • Native floral laser cut acrylic pieces

  • An earring board to take home

  • An overview of the laser cutting process, to provide knowledge of laser cutting your own acrylic jewellery

  • Inspiration and confidence to make and customise acrylic earrings

  • Workshop exclusive designs, pre-cut and engraved into earring pieces

  • Customise and layer acrylic pieces into four pairs of earrings made by you


What to bring

  • Your amazing self, and if you have an earring loving pal, it’s a fun thing to do together

In such a strange stressful time it was so lovely to do something calm and relaxing. Alex the teacher was great and the pieces we had to work with really let our imaginations run wild. I would definitely do it again

Alex was very helpful and always ready to help. As I have no experience in jewellery making she was always happy to help me out. The others in the class were fun and also helpful with colours etc. Venue was easy to get to and found parking easily and close to it. The earrings I made were great and my 2 daughters loved them. Might have to send them to a class. Alex travels so that is good as they live in Melbourne and Perth.

Interesting class . I loved the design of native bush flowers.
The material was of good quality and abundant.
The teacher enthusiastic and supportive.
I hope to be able to come again . It would be wonderful to learn how is the preparation of the pieces , to see the desing moment with the software and the cutting process.
Many thanks for your lesson!

Alex is a fantastic teacher & very approachable. The products are so lovely to create with there really is no limit to your creativity making beautiful earrings.
The venue was easy to find, plenty of room & thankfully they had plenty of fans to move the air as it was very humid.
