Wire Work

Working with wire is a common practice both in the machine shop and craft shop.  Practical items such as inductors and mechanical springs are made from wire; in the craft shop wire working is a key skill for fabrication.  Materials in wire form as diverse as silver, tungsten and steel can be formed, twisted, wound, braided, rolled and drawn. We will talk about materials and their properties, gauge standards, the mechanics of forming, fabrication methods and then use soft wire to demonstrate hand braiding  and machine finishing of copper to make a bracelet.  Interested students with torch qualification can make their own.  Good introduction for more advanced jewelry classes. 

Material fee $10.

    I highly recommend Richard W.'s wire working class. Excellent discussion of the nature of copper wire put into practice.
