Wire Wrapped Tree of Life Workshop


The tree of life can be found in many traditions, and often is a symbol for growth and the continuous cycles of life. In this class we will learn to wire wrap onto a cabochon or other shaped stone this beautiful symbol. Each student will leave the class with a wrapped pendant of their own design and handwork. This class is aimed toward beginners as well as those with some previous metal working experience. We will cover general safety when working with metals as well as a variety of wire wrapping, forging, annealing, polishing, and finishing techniques. All tools and material will be provided. Please plan to bring or buy a lunch, as we will have a break in the class.
