Bí URBAN are delighted to be bringing Lili Tanner, the renowned jewellery designer and photographer, over from the mojave desert for a western-themed weekend.
On July 7th, Lili will be running a jewellery workshop in Bolo Tie design using precious metal clay. The Bolo tie has existed since the mid-20th century within Navajo and other native communities throughout the West of America. To smith these exquisite pieces, we will be moulding, shaping and heating the clay into bronze pieces with all materials provided.
There will be limited places for this workshop, so you must book in advance.
On the previous day, the 6th of July, she will be launching her acclaimed photographic book Wild Things, an up-close and personal look into Navajo Rodeo lifestyles in New Mexico, followed by a screening later in the evening. You can find the Book Launch & Screening tickets here.
