In a nutshell
Have you ever picked up a pebble from the beach, found a piece of sea glass, spotted a semi-precious gem stone or crystal and thought… I like that but what to do with it? Don’t keep them on a shelf - turn them into your very own unique pieces of wire wrapped jewellery!
Join us in a fun and inspiring 5-week course. You'll participate in a series of workshop style sessions, introducing you to the basics of wire wrapping. Once you have the basic knowledge and techniques, you'll be encouraged to design and create your own piece of unique jewellery incorporating your found treasures.
This course is for...
… beginners who are new to jewellery making
… anyone who wants to learn something new
... those who are creative and looking for a creative hobby
This course will introduce you to the key areas of wire wrapped jewellery, including:
- Basic wire manipulation.
- Wire weaving
- Stone/bead wrapping.
By the end of the course, you should feel confident and able to use the techniques learnt to further your creative jewellery journey – you are only limited by your own imagination!
All necessary tools will be provided, along with a limited amount of wire and range of beads/stones to practice the basic techniques.
You'll need to purchase additional wire, beads/stones to complete your own designs.
There are no entry requirements for this course.
