In this workshop you will learn how to weave small sheets of metal from flattened wire to incorporate in your jewelry. You will be introduced to a variety of different patterns that can be
achieved with weave structures that range from a simple over under plain weave to beautiful flowing undulating designs. There are so many fun ways to achieve different e
weaving, including the weave pattern itself, combining different metals for contrast in the weave pattern and varying the widths of the wire used in the weave structure. Students will be encouraged to create a variety of samples. You will learn how to form your samples in the hydraulic press as well as to solder their edges. kits will be provided with the materials to get started, as well as instructions on how to prepare the materials yourself. How to design your own weave patterns with graph paper will be introduced as well as a wealth of resources to inspire you. There will be discussions and samples on to set and utilize your 'woven sheet' in brooches, pendants, beads, and earrings. Basic metalsmithing skills are required.
