Recycled Wire Jewellery with Irene

Irene is an artist and has run recycling workshops for almost 40 years. Her favourite workshop is making copper spiral jewellery from electrical wiring. She teaches the easiest way to reclaim the copper from old electrical wiring. You can dismantle unwanted jewellery and add found things in the process. Irene carries all the tools and equipment needed in a small trailer, designed for the job with pull out workbenches.

Irene Says: “I have just finished 5 years at university studying art and now have a masters in painting. I am currently working with beeswax encaustic painting.”
