Want to take your wire crocheting one level up and create three-dimensional shapes?
If the answer is YES, this advanced class if for you!
Learn how to crochet very thin (30-32 gauge) wire metal in a double thread, from silver to gold, including brass and copper, to create a three dimensional form. In this class, we will explore how to make complex shapes—spheres, coils, and irregular droplets—both open and closed on one or two sides.
And while we're at it, let's combine them with beads, leather, or natural fibers. By the end of the class, you'll have a jewelry piece and more advanced techniques to add to your repertoire.
Have a favorite bead or fiber you love? You're welcome to bring it for a class discussion and to incorporate into your piece! All materials and tools provided.
Prerequisites: Students are encouraged to take the Crocheted Wire Jewelry Made Easy prior to this class. Basic wire crocheting skills (basic chain and single stitch with wire) necessary.
Graphic designer by day, crafter extraordinaire by night.
I've been making things for since I can remember. As a child, I didn't play with dolls but "toys" I made combining found objects with familiar materials: paint, fabric, clay. Much later, in Fine Arts & Design schools, I explored processes and techniques, and learned the language of color, form and shape.
From crocheting jewelry, soap making or printing, building furniture and casting concrete, I love getting my hands dirty playing with as many materials as I can.
