Advanced Wire Wrapping 
with Annette Holbert

This class is building on the wire wrap that was learned in the Basic Wire Wrap Class. You must have had the first class. We will spend very little time on completing a basic wrap. You will learn to design a wrap for irregular shaped stones, long wraps, prongs, new finishing techniques and a new bail shape. I will be reinforcing the anchoring techniques and go over what to do with your left over wires after you have made your bail. You will learn to add beads and incorporate coiled wire or weaving for decoration. If there is time we can explore other details and questions at the end of class. Please practice wrapping before this class. You will get behind in class if you have not practiced. The cost is $75 and includes all supplies.
