wire-garden-2-700wCourse outline: Led by Anne Marie Desaulniers, you’ll learn to combine wire, headpins and beads, to create a totally unique beaded object. Start with a commercial base, and then learn a variety of techniques, to create your dimensional beaded garden. Something that’s sure to make you smile, on those dull winter days! Bugs, butterflies and daydreams are optional! Note: a kit is required for the class; see details below.

Prerequisite: Must be comfortable working with both fine wire and small beads

Bring to class: A selection of beads, including flowers, leaves, and a variety of seed beads (including 15s, 11s and 8s). Wire cutters, round nose and chain nose pliers.
