Expand your knitting horizons and get wired! Wire is a wonderful, flexible medium to use to make delicate and interesting jewelry. In this class we'll cover the basics of working with 28 gauge wire starting with knitting needles and moving onto other methods with heavier gauges as time permits. We will make simple but beautiful pieces that can also be embellished with beads. The class will also cover resources and materials for successful wire knitting. Wireworking or jewelry making skill not required but basic knit skills necessary.
Supplies: Please bring size 2-5 metal knitting needles (double pointed best) and crochet hooks of various smaller sizes. Also bring beads and jewelry pliers, if you have them, and any 26-28 gauge wire you may have. Wire will be available for purchase from instructor as needed. This can be fine work so bring magnifiers, if you use them. Cost of participation does not include materials fee. Please bring $10 in cash or check for starter materials; additional wire can be purchased as well.
