Wire is a wonderfully direct material. Using a few tools, it’s possible to make a variety of objects—from jewelry scale to architectural elements—from the same information. We’ll be working with black annealed steel wire, which most resembles a pencil line. Beginning with a brief look at how wire has historically been made, we’ll cover many techniques and highlight working methods based on Slovakian tinkering. All levels. Upper metals studio.

Note: This workshop takes place in a studio that has stairs that compromise access. It is made partially accessible by a stair lift.

Studio artist working in many materials, deputy director at Haystack (ME); worked in jewelry industry for 18 years as jeweler/stone setter/designer; teaches internationally.
