In 4.5 hours’ time, learn how to make your own one-of-a-kind spectacles or sunglass frames! Designer Chris Savage will walk you through the process of how to construct your frames from a slab of Asatate (coloured plastic block) with stainless steel sides. You’ll learn how to use a Jeweller’s saw, files, a dremel, and sand-paper- but it’s up to you to bring your own creativity! You’ll choose from 10 different colours and 8 different styles for the front of your frames, and choose from 3 different coloured metals for the sides! Plus choose from 3 different tinted colours for your tinted lenses (or upgrade to prescription sunglass lenses or prescription clear lenses).
