Elegant ‘Bird’ Component

July 15, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm

Cdn $55.00 +Kit fee: $15 for copper kit or $40 for sterling silver kit, payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: Discover how to create a versatile ‘bird’ element which can be used as a necklace or bracelet. Students will have a chance to work with sterling silver wire or copper (please specify the choice when registering). You’ll create lots of spirals in this design, learn how to finish the end of the spiral and give a final finishing touch by hammering portions of the wire. You’ll also give some definition and colour by oxidizing the wire in class and polishing.

Skill level: Intermediate

Prerequisite: Students need to have knowledge on wire wrapping techniques; previous wire wrap classes are recommended.

Technique: Working with sterling silver or copper wire; shape the wire using a template; hammering wire; finishing spiral ends; oxidizing and polishing.

Bring to class: Magnification if required; you may use your own pliers and tools or use the studio tools.

Of special note: the class patterns and instructions from our classes are for your personal use only. Please respect the intellectual property of our artists/instructors by not sharing, selling, or teaching the patterns you receive from the classes you take.
