WIRE WOVEN MAYAN PENDANT
Registration Fee includes the class fee plus the kit fee.
Wire weaving is a set of techniques, similar to basket weaving, where you wrap thin weave wires around thicker base wires to create patterns and textures. You can then use these wire-woven strips to make all kinds of things, such as the framework to turn a cabochon or bead into a pendant, earring dangles, bracelets, bails, and the like.
In this class, we learn about
- materials needed
- preparing the wire before weaving
- creating a 2-base wire soumak weave called Dressed or Nude
- shaping our wire weave to fit it around an elongated bead, and turning the bead into a pendant
