Beginners Crochet Wire Necklace with Beads - One Day Class - Choose date

95.00

If you are a Beader, a Knitter, an Embroiderer, a Weaver or just plain nutty about everything textile, I have a class for you. With over 10 years of teaching these specialist wire techniques I give you tips and tricks that you won’t find in any books.

If you are new to crocheting with wire I recommend my Beginners Wire Crochet Class - specifically designed for complete beginners even if you have never crocheted before - you will be amazed what you can achieve with this highly versatile technique. No experience necessary - just nifty fingers!

Even if you already know how to crochet this project will teach you all about working with wire, how it behaves, what it can and can’t do - and how it opens up a whole new world of 3-Dimensional jewellery design possibilities.

Join me at Cockpit Arts, Holborn for a day of fun making a Crochet Wire Necklace. We make a 3-strand beaded Necklace featuring different stitch variations on each strand.

We will cover the following tasks on the day:

• how to cast-on crochet stitches

• make foundation chain

• add beads into individual stitches

• how to create bead stalk stitches

• how to crochet loops using a slip-stitch

• how to finish off your piece and attach a vintage button clasp

Choose from a large selection of pretty coloured wire and beautiful glass beads to personalise your design.

This class will equip you with all you need to know to get started on your journey of wire crochet jewellery design.

What is included?

ALL materials for this project are included in your fee, including steel crochet hook, gorgeous coloured reel of wire plus a large choice of beautiful beads - and a step-by-step project book to keep. Take home whatever you have left to carry on making at home.

With small class sizes individual instruction is possible, so no-one is left struggling on their own. Information is also given on materials, suppliers and suggested reading.

We follow a project for this class - but it will equip you with many options for designing future projects of your own. No need to bring anything. If you are faster than your fellow classmates I can give you extra tasks to keep you fully occupied.

Free tea, coffee and biscuits are available throughout the day.

Do I need to bring anything?

If you wear glasses for close-up work you will need to bring them. All tools will be provided. Extra Wire and Beads are available to buy on the day to take home.

What time does the class start and finish?

Classes run from 10.30-4.30pm. We break for lunch at 1pm for an hour - you are welcome to bring your own lunch or pop out to the nearby shops and cafés.

Cockpit Arts is wheelchair accessible.
