Back by popular demand, TRAFFICKED Designs, along with jewelry maker and instructor Lynda Medore, will host a jewelry making workshop for the benefit of victims of human trafficking at New Braunfels Art League at 239 W San Antonio St., New Braunfels, Texas on Monday, December 3 from 1-3:30pm.
This is a “Make & Donate” class. The cost of the materials for the two bracelets is $12. The students make one bracelet for themselves and donate one to the victims of human trafficking, so that others may have a chance at freedom. Students will need to bring flat-nose pliers, chain-nose pliers, and flush cutters if you have them, other supplies to make the bracelets will be provided. To enroll in the class, please call Lynda Medore at (830)358-0186.
NEW DESIGN FOR DECEMBER 3 CLASS!
Dottie Laster of Laster Global Consulting and Bernardo Kohler Center heads up the TRAFFICKED Designs project with the idea that it will generate enough funds to support those who need it most. Laster is one of the nation’s leading advocates for human trafficking victims, a certified and experienced trainer to law enforcement and advocates across the country, and one who has clearly taken up the issue of awareness and education of human trafficking globally.
Lynda Medore has been a member of the New Braunfels Art League and displaying jeweler since 2000. She is originally from Beaumont, Texas where she worked in such left-brain fields as dental hygiene and flow meter engineering. She moved to the Texas Hill Country in 1991 where she discovered her creativity. Her earlier work was focused on making jewelry with gemstone beads, mostly for herself and for gifts. Then in 1993 she learned glass blowing in Wimberley, Texas and lampworking (forming glass with the heat of a torch) at Penland Craft School, in NC. There she studied with Kari Russell-Pool, making intricate flower petals and stems and “welding” them together with the torch. While there she met Allison Schaefer who was one of the first glass beadmakers.
