Students who work with me will start with the basics–how to make simple earring hooks, wire wraps, and clasps–and then move into basic chain making and component creation. After that, they will learn how to make a variety of beads from paper, polymer clay, and beads. The course also includes an introduction to wood burning (I’m in love with it currently).
Students will have a basic tool kit they will need to purchase (pliers and some suggested items), but I will supply the remaining materials.
The course begins Friday, January 6 and runs for 12 weeks.
Time: Fridays 2:00-3:30 pm
Limit: 6 students
Place: The Greer Center for Creative Arts, 100 Davis Avenue, Greer, SC
