4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Learn to make simple and decorative clasps, ear wires, head pins and bead wraps to use in your own creations. If you have a spool of wire handy and some basic tools, you’ll always be preparedto finish a piece of jewelry once you learn these creative skills.
This is a beginner class, so no experience is needed. All levels of students will enjoy the projects and the opportunity to take a class with a world class instructor.
Instructor is Melody MacDuffee, author of three books on wirework, as well as several more recent booklets and dozens of individually published jewelry designs. Melody has taught her distinctive jewelry-making techniques all over the U.S. and as far away as West Africa, where she ultimately co-founded a non-profit that provides paid training and steady jobs at a living wage for disadvantaged young adults of the Krobo tribe. Her Craftsy instructional video, Filigree Jewelry with a Twist!, came out in 2015, and she is a frequent guest artist on Jewelry Television’s Jewel School.
A full spool of wire is included in this class. Tools will be provided for you to use during class.
