ONLINE Woven Wire Cuff
This ONLINE beginner’s jewelry fabrication class will focus on creating cuffs with metal wire woven into an attractive, substantial cuff bracelet. Use colorful aluminum wire, taking advantage of its malleability, and learn to weave the pattern using nothing more than a simple bench vice and your hands. The technique may be used with various thicknesses of wire, and various types of wire such as copper, silver-plated or solid silver wire. Once you learn the basics, you can expand on the technique to create delicate cuffs or very heavy-duty pieces, all with a minimum of tools.
This ONLINE course includes access to a 30-minute video hosted online at Vimeo (link provided one week prior to the workshop). You’ll receive a kit in the mail that includes anodized aluminum wire for 2 cuffs, and solid copper wire for an additional cuff, and written directions for reference. We’ll meet on ZOOM for a 2-hour class on Saturday, February 27, from 10am to 12noon. The ZOOM meeting will include demonstration by the instructor, time for question/answer, and work time where you can pose questions as you create a cuff in the comfort of your own home or studio. We’ll hang out on-line/at-home for the morning, and you can pose questions as you work and show off accomplishments at the end. REGISTRATION DEADLINE FEBRUARY 13th due to kit mailing.
