Jr Rockhounds–Age 12–17:Wire Wrapping Seed Beading - Bergquist Green
This course combines basic instruction in both seed beading and wire wrap. Projects allow students to build skills steadily to accomplish projects of increasing complexity. At a minimum, five wire wrap projects will be presented plus complementary or enhancing beaded projects such as a Kumihimo necklace to accompany a wire wrapped pendant. Design elements to include beaded accents for wire wrapped pieces will be presented. Additional projects will be offered as student’s experience, interest, and time allow. Students who have taken this or a similar course previously will be provided new projects commensurate with their experience, interest, and ability. Although all required supplies and tools will be available for use during the class, students may bring their own tools and supplies. Optivisor or magnifying clip-ons are strongly recommended. Lab fee covers handouts, supplies for proposed projects including all beads, findings, cabochons and shaped brass, bronze and copper wire. Beads and cabochons for wire wrap projects beyond the pre-planned projects plus silver-filled, sterling silver or gold-filled wire will be available for purchase from the instructors.
