Launching her namesake line upon graduation from Concordia Fine Arts in 2007, Arielle de Pinto introduced chain crochet to the worlds of contemporary art and fashion. Now approaching her fifth year of professional practice, Arielle’s work has been featured in such publications as Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, i-D, and Dazed & Confused, among many others. De Pinto has also been featured in contemporary jewelry books and industry publications, exhibited at international museums and galleries, and produced commissioned work for fashion houses and numerous public figures.
The Accessories Workshop will focus on the basic assembly of wearable accessories. Participants are encouraged to bring their own hats, belts, jewelry, etc. to accessorize as well as their own charms that they want to keep but that they might not know what to do with (or donate charms for others to use). Arielle will help participants craft accessories from scratch or turn an old item new.
