Wire Wrapping 2 | Mar 24 & 31


Instructor Joan Lisi
March 24 & 31, 2018
Saturdays 10AM-1PM

This is not a glass class, but a class for learning how to wrap your pendants or large beads in intricate metal embellishments. Wire wrapping experience necessary.

Students with some wire wrapping experience will learn how to weave and wrap 4 wires into 3 patterns, incorporate 3 copper spacer beads, and create a bail with surrounding for the whole bead. Students will need to provide a bead or 2 for wrapping, or purchase one at the Sonoran Glass School. A round shape is simplest for this workshop. If  you have a bead larger than .75 inches, the bead should be flat on the back (if possible) and have a hole no larger than a 3/32 mandrel.

Materials/Fees: There is a $20 material fee payable to the instructor (please bring cash or check) which will include: instruction guide, 18, 20, and 28 gauge copper wire, plastic bobbin, oxidization agent, steel wool and tool sharing. Extra pliers and cutters are available for sale through the instructor ($4.50 per tool).

-Round nose pliers
-Chain nose pliers
-Flat nose pliers
