Wire French Knitting Class

French-knit wire bracelet with beads
Project based One Day class - £120

De-mystifying this ancient and intriguing technique.

I will share many tricks and tips to help you - as well as a technique perfected from years of practice.

I have designed each project so you will have a finished piece of jewellery by the end of the day.

We will cover the following on the day:

- how to cast on and work stitches using your spool
- how to knit small beads into individual stitches as you go
- how to add beads into the centre of the knitting
- how to fasten off and add a clasp or ear hooks

All your materials are included in your fee, including crochet hook, silver-plated wire, wooden spool, a choice of pretty beads, silver-plated clasps and a project book.

See examples of pieces made in this class at: https://www.facebook.com/pg/terihowesjewellery/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1300432706669060

Information is given on materials, suppliers and suggested reading.
