We will use wire to decorate the exterior of an 18" rectangular vase using a looping fiber technique known as 'knotless netting.' This vase is perfect for displaying those big beautiful bird-of-paradise or sturdy heliconia blossoms. Have fun creating an embellished looped wire vase, and enhance the decorative effect with a few beads! All materials will be supplied by the instructor.

This class is appropriate for any skill level. All materials will be provided. There is a $15 supply fee paid to the instructor on the day of class. Please bring needle-nosed pliers if you have some, and dress comfortably.
