Beginners Wire Wrapping
Take a look above to see examples of what can be made in this class. These images are of students' and tutors' work.
Learn the age old technique of wire wrapping, a great way of showing off shaped stones. No soldering or gluing is involved and you will learn to twist and interlock wire to create stunning statement pieces.
Through this intensive class you will learn how to use a range of different shaped wires to create settings for stones and beads and how to create structural pieces using wire.
During the class, an experienced tutor will guide you through the process of working with the wire, creating twists, curls and coils. Once you have covered the basic techniques, you will work through 2-3 projects throughout the day to develop your skills and should leave with 2-3 finished pieces of jewellery. On this course you will have the chance to make a ring, pendant and pair of earrings using copper and silver-plated or German wire.
The class is suitable for beginners, but is also great for anyone who has done some beading or wire work before.
