Relax & Craft: April 2016

Wire Sculptures

Armed with a coil of wire and a turning tool, see what you can create with a few twists of your wrists. We will provide some simple shapes to copy, like this bird pictured, or you can come up with your own design. After you’ve created your wire shape, we’ll show you ways to dress it up with fabric, paper and beads. We’ll have lots of samples and inspiration. No advanced registration required, just show up!

Tuesday, April 19, 6-7pm at Canyon Country Library
Wednesday, April 27 6:30-7:30pm at Old Town Newhall Library
