Do you like to play with fire? How about combining that adventurous spirit with the experience of working with wire cloth and wire? Experiment with textile techniques and a variety of wires, as well as different meshes of copper, bronze and stainless steel wire cloth. Give yourself the opportunity to play with these new materials and accept the challenge of adding and expanding your fibre vocabulary.
Students will explore this process of inspiration and technique with Marilyn using fine coloured wires, which can be brought from their own stash. Included with the class will be the use of the torch as a tool for preparation of the materials. Wire cloth and wire will be used to create baskets and jewellery to excite the senses. Students may wish to get involved in a large project or produce a number of samples with technique in mind. Twining with fine coloured wires, knitting and crocheting with wire, working with wire cloth, embellishing with beads, and pearls, will make an exciting adventure for students.
