Can You Make Wire Jewellery?

Whether you're a complete beginner or have experience.

The Workshops will have something for you

I discovered wire jewellery in the late 1990's it was virtually unheard of in the UK at that time but making quite an impact in the US.

After a couple of years of practice I had a great business doing the craft show circuit in the UK.  I was approached by a private jewellery school who asked me to teach .  I was amazed and not really sure this was something I would want to do but after completing a teacher training course I started teaching and discovered that I loved it and it became my passion in life.

 

I have been teaching the art of wire jewellery now for nearly 20 years it always surprises me that it has been that long.  

We moved to Ireland in 2006 and for some reason it is only now I am starting workshops here in Ireland. 

 

Based in Galway many of the workshops will be taking place at Cregal Art.    I will, if required travel to you and do the workshop in the comfort of your home a large table and chairs are all that is needed
