About this Event
This class is for junior makers or anyone else interested. Junior maker should be comfortable using tools.
Learn to make simple wire rings in historical styles, including Greek spirals, Roman rosettes, and Saxon wraps. We will use 18 gauge wire, although these can be made with 16 or 20 gauge as well.
Hand tools to be used include ring mandrel, various pliers, hammer.
Instructor will provide copper wire ($1-2), or you may bring your own colored copper based wire that you can find at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.
Some styles can have a few beads added, if you want to bring some. Hole should be big enough to go over 18 gauge wire.
Special Considerations and Warnings
Bring 18 gauge copper based wire or a few dollars to use instructor's. (16 or 20 gauge wire also work, but not as well.) If you want to add a few beads (3-8) to the Roman rosette ring, they need to fit over 18 gauge wire and be smallish.
This is in the workshop area, junior maker must be accompanied by parent. Junior maker should be comfortable using tools like pliers. These are a lot of fun to make.
