February 20th, 2021 - Woven Metal @ Memphis Botanic Gardens

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to make three different woven pieces. Project 1 is a flat pendant woven on a frame with mixed metals (sterling silver and copper). Project 2 is a woven copper cuff – we weave the cuff flat and use a mandrel to shape it once it’s all put together! And Project 3 is an adjustable sterling and fine silver ring. 
Your class kit ($40- payable to instructor at the class time) includes all the materials needed to make one of each type of project. We will have extra kits for each of the projects if you want to purchase and make more. 

Your class fee includes full-color step by step instructions for each project, so you’ll be able
to easily make more at home! 
All the heavy-hitting tools for this class are provided for use- we have mandrels, hammers, and more. If you have the following tools, please bring them as it will make the class go smoother and faster:  Jewelry files, Jewelry pliers, steel block, and rawhide/nylon mallet.
