Wire crochet is an easy, portable and tactile craft with endless possibilities anda brilliant shine! This eight week course covers all “the need to know” basics of wire crochet through a series of demonstrations, discussions and sample assignments that will prepare students to create their own projects. Following the demonstrations students will work alongside their instructor to design and create their very own piece of wire crochet art. Demonstrations will cover: the basic ISK stitch, creating a base, adding new wire, increasing and decreasing stitches, releasing work from the base, using the draw plate, flattening 3D forms, using the ISK loom, creating a flat mesh, interweaving beads and how to finish pieces with the loop hem.
**Please Note: Due to the self-guided nature of the project students may want or need to buy different or extra materials. Students must be prepared to purchase some materials**

Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Hannah Proctor is a young aspiring artist and recent graduate of the NSCAD University Jewellery Design and Metalsmithing program. Having always been intrigued and influenced by the arts, Hannah spent the vast majority of her formative years exploring different mediums and creating work with the guidance of her mother. She began her post-secondary journey as an interdisciplinary sculpture student but after one holloware class, she quickly took to jewellery and began creating sculptural adornment. The artist finds inspiration in the intricacies of the natural world and the cold materiality of machinery both past and present, these fascinations work in tandem with Hannah’s knack for material exploration as she utilises and combines different materials to create complex pieces that push the bounds of what is considered jewellery.
