Special Alert! The Bellevue Rock and Gem Show has been cancelled due to a scheduling conflict! No show at Vasa Park Washington on October 28, 29!!!
I am Char Jorgensen, Award winning Master Level Wirewrapper, and I will escort you through the wonderful windings of wire work! I have been teaching for over 18 years at my home, nationally in Philadelphia and Santa Fe, Everett Community College (formerly Cascadia) and other venues so anyone can learn how easy it is to take something ordinary and turn it into spectacular jewelry.
WHY I AM DIFFERENT FROM OTHER TEACHERS: You can bring your own Stone!
All of my classes are beginner level classes and students are encouraged to bring their own stones to wrap in class!
NEW CLASS ALERT!!! This is an oldie but goodie class that I have worked up to be painlessly easy! It's called "Perfect Prongs". This means you get the right length of prong and the right positioning on the stone perfect every time!!! Watch for this class coming soon!!!
I am building a studio but it won't be done soon so I am currently teaching classes at Arts Alive in Enumclaw, Washington and at Ben Franklin in Bonney Lake twice a month! I have posted them for you up to June 2017! I am excited to be teaching again and even more excited that my instructor wants to learn my styles!!! Woo Hoo!!!
Schedule has resumed!!! Be sure to look at the pages for tips on wire troubles!
“I’ve been privileged to have two amazing classes with Char. She is not only a master Wire Wrapper and the Lapidary Professional, she is a gifted teacher who can help even a “first timer” like me to feel like I can build commercial quality product. We laughed, we wrapped, we felt good. I’d take another class from her in a heart-beat. You should too!” - Russell E
