Studio Arts Workshop

Friday, November 15, 2019 - 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Code: 1K00TA

By Mïa Vollkommer

Creating a unique bead-and-wire pendant is as easy as 1-2-3! Learn the terminology, tools, and techniques of wirework including forming, hammering, and precision wire- wrapping as you make a colorful abacus-style pendant. The workshop is a great way to use up beads left over from other projects. Recommended for wire-workers of all levels.

A wire kit ($10) is available for purchase in class. Students may borrow studio arts hand tools to work with in class.
