Ornamental Peace Project 2019 Kit

Course Description

About this event

Peace is commonly described as a sense of harmony, balance and absence of hostility or violence. Our interpretations of peace often have strong symbols and images that are specific to our imaginations. How do you see and interpret peace? What brings you peace in your own life? How do you imagine peace in the lives of others?

Metalwerx invites you to participate in our third annual Ornamental Peace Project. By using the designated kit, create an object, ornament, or memento that embodies your idea, image, or interpretation of peace. All pieces submitted will be exhibited and have the opportunity to be sold at Craft Boston Holiday 2019 as well as be featured in our online exhibition.

Kit cost: $25 + $5 shipping (option to pickup at Metalwerx office is available- use code PICKUP at checkout to remove $5 shipping fee, and pick up in person)


Deadline for submission:  November 26th, 2019 at 5:30pm.
Drop off or mail completed entry form along with finished piece to Metalwerx.
No entries will be accepted after the above date.
