Description
This class is demonstrative only but will provide you with tools and techniques to achieving simple rounded and spiral shapes with larger gauge brass wire suitable for cloak, dress, and hairpins from many time periods. We will go over basic tools, torch safety, and techniques to get you started and end with a demonstration on how I make tight spirals on large pins or fibula. Take my "Small Pointy Things, Beginner Wire Working" class to obtain the fundamentals! Handout: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Ohf-Zp8A5SXzQ8sBbebxvOaG3IhEpF2-ZKU0qTchM7A/edit?usp=sharing
