Join the creator of the Blinged-Out "Universal Tree of Life" (shining outside of AVAM's Main Entrance) to make your own necktie: a dynamic, sparkling tie made from mirrors, marbles and such. Each participant will receive instruction on cutting and assemblage and will leave this workshop with at least one finished mirror art piece AND a necktie, just in time for Father’s Day! For beginning and continuing students. Check out to see more of Bob's work.
