General fabrication techniques using wire weaving, wrapping, interlacing, and basic knot work. Using these skills we will create functional works, such as rings, earrings, and bracelets. There will also be safety tips and basic direction in tool use. The class is aimed for the beginner artist and medium level student.

STERLING THOMAS is a talented metal smith with over 30 years of experience fabricating jewelry in Northern California. His unique style of wire weaving was passed down from his father, which Sterling now passes on to his students. His work is currently available at The Gallery Mendocino and has been displayed at the Mendocino Art Center.
