Basic Wire Wrapping
Lauren Ball and Judith Birx will be teaching basic wire wrapping techniques such as making loops, headpins, eye pins, clasps, and ear wires. Once the basic techniques have been learned, the group will be taught to wire wrap a cabochon to make a pendant. If you bring your own wire and cabochon there is no charge for the class, other than the $1.00 building usage fee. Otherwise the cost for the wire is $3.00 plus the cost of a cabochon ($3.00 to $10.00).
If you choose to bring your own wire, you will need a piece of 18 to 20 gauge copper, 36 inches long. We have tool kits that you can use for wire wrapping.
