Wire Weaving I & II
This class is for beginner to intermediate level students. Beginner students, who do not have any weaving or other wire experience, will start with 3 projects that will focus on basic weaving skills including looping, netting, basket weave, stitching, etc. Students that already have some wire-waving skills will be given the choice of working with the beginners to sharpen their techniques, or they can work on one more advanced project. We will be working with copper, fine silver and sterling silver. After the initial practice projects, each student will work on the projects of their choosing based on their skill level. A number of different kits will be available for purchase. You can also bring your own materials. Depending on the individual progress you can expect to make 4-7 projects. Lab fee covers supplies for the initial practice projects, practice wire and other consumables, such as use of torches, liver to sulfur, steel wool, etc. The instructor will contact students a few weeks before class with a list of required tools. To see examples of the kind of work we will be doing, please see workshop descriptions on this site. Should you have any questions, contact me at email@example.com.
Lab Fee: $200
