Wine and Wire Wrapping
“Chimera Arts’ Jewelry Studio Presents:
A Wine and Wire Wrapping Event
Bring a friend and let’s make a night of it! Have a glass of wine while you create some wearable art.
All tools and most materials will be provided, including wire. But, I will only have a limited supply of ephemera. Guests are encouraged to bring their own small items. Start looking around now! The street is a great source of interestingly textured and shaped items! Here are some ideas:
- Bottle caps, keys, small locks
- Crystals, wood, rocks with holes
- Anything with a hole in it – this makes things easier!
- Spools, beads, buttons,
- Thread, yarn, ribbon, fabric, paper, feathers, book or comic book pages
- Small vials, toys, game pieces, doll parts
- Washers and other small hardware items
- Bits of old jewelry, chain, leather
- Etc. Think wearable!
We will be creating totems so, think about what you want your totem to represent and what you would like it to be made of.
Nancy will be demonstrating how to create a wire “trapeze”, how to link items together, how to wire objects and wrap them for attaching. I’ll also demonstrate how to drill holes and I’ll show you some basic finishing techniques. You’ll also learn how to create a simple clasp and I’ll throw in some ideas on how to hang your totems too! This will be a relaxing and creative way to dip your toe into jewelry making.
ADULTS ONLY. No experience necessary! Open to members and non-members, alike!
Guests to bring their own wine. A very limited quantity may/will be available. If you’d like, bring an apron and you’ll definitely need a hair tie if you have long hair.”
