Shawl Pins, Key Chains and Everything in Between - AM - SOLD OUT
Limited Capacity seats available

You will be amazed at the unlimited potential of working in wire! Geared for those who want to try something that doesn't require a big investment, this class promises to convince you that with a few tools and a few skills there is no limit to what you can make. After this class you can make that birthday gift before you head to the party. The longer class allows for time to experiment with various gauges of copper, bronze and nickel. A quick demonstration on ear wire making allows would be earring makers to fabricate their own findings.

Tool basics, ergonomic tool usage and a few lines on safety get the student on the road to making an unlimited selection of projects from shawl pins, buttons, zipper pulls, cable needle necklaces and a simple necklace design that doubles as a closure for bags of cookies or chips. Students are encouraged to go off on their own directions. I promise a plethora of project samples.
No Experience Necessary!
