The class will cover resources and materials and various techniques for successful wire knitting and crochet.
Wireworking or jewelry making skill not required but basic knit and crochet skills necessary.
$75 - Workshop fee. Please pre-register at SJMQT
$65 - members
$15 - Materials fee (payable to instructor and will be collected class):
includes 1 spool each of 26 & 28 g wire
Please bring size 2-5 knitting needles and similar sized crochet hooks. However, if you prefer to work either smaller or larger, make sure to pack appropriate sized tools. Double pointed metal needles are only 7” and thus easier to knit with. Bring jewelry pliers and wire cutters if you have them though this wire is fine enough to use scissors, if needed. If you would like to incorporate beads into your work, it would be best to bring them. Also, this can be fine work so bring magnifiers if you use them. Extra spools of wire will be available for purchase from instructor as needed.
