About This Class

f8b07713

This bitesize class will be all about how to recycle light bulbs into cute bugs, and it will mainly involve easy wirework techniques.

The students require basic tools and materials and no previous knowledge or experience...a little bit of imagination would help though!

I will walkthrough the making of one light bulb bug using a long cylindrical light bulb, craft wire and seed beads.
