Wire Work Progressive Series

Intsructor; Erin Stroh

Dates: 10/ 3, 10/10, 10/17, and 10/24 Time: 6-9pm Price: $180

Level: Beginning to Intermediate
Beginning wire wrapping encouraged, but not required if the student has some experience working with wire or basic jewelry construction

Concept: Students will start this 4 part series at the very beginning and progress to an intermediate level by the end. This course will include information regarding metal and wire choices, practices for creating your own designs incorporating beads and cabochons, various wire weaving techniques and tons of hands-on practice developing your own creations. Each class will have a separate focus, increasing skill, learning new techniques and incorporating concepts from the previous class. 

By the end of the series, students will have made a handful of items ranging from rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. 

This is a great class for anyone who is self-taught and wants to fine-tune their designing or technique as well. It is advised that students have their own tools so they can practice at-home between each session, but it is not required. 

Students sign-up for the series as a whole, not individual sessions. When you order your ticket just choose the first date option. That will sign you up for the whole series.

Individual class description:

In the first part of the series, students will learn how to form connections, create components like ear-wires and head-pins, and practice simple additions like spirals, coils and shapes. Focus of this session will also be on heavy gauge wire shaping, hammering to create texture and dimension, and combining pieces to form finished jewelry. 

Each student will receive a glossary of wire and jewelry terms, metals, and tools. Students may leave class with a finished ring, necklace and/or pair of earrings. They will also receive a few practice projects to work on at home before the next session. Although this is highly recommended, it is not required to complete these projects before the next class.
