Sandra  Bergquist

Sandra's interest in wire art began with a two hour class in wire wrapping in 2004. When she wanted to go beyond that initial course, she was directed to William Holland. To repay what she has called "The Gift of William Holland", she vowed that, if she ever became good enough, she would teach every chance she got. Consequently, Sandra (who started teaching in 2008) has taught for numerous organizations in a wide variety of settings. In addition to teaching wire and chain at William Holland and to members of her rock and gem club, she is currently providing private lessons while also conducting workshops in her area. Because her workshops include students of widely varying skill levels and interests, Sandra has become adept at managing multiple, concurrent projects for diverse groups.
