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 20 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. I currently have classes at Ben Franklin in Bonney Lake and will be starting classes at Arts Alive! in Enumclaw in January 2019.
WHY I AM DIFFERENT FROM OTHER TEACHERS: You can bring your own Stone! I will help you decide which style your stone would look best in - and you do not have to have calibrated stones - I love freeforms! The only requirement I have is that it is flat backed so it will sit against the skin without scratching.
All my classes have instructions with illustrations! Plus you can email me or call if you have any questions!
Most my classes are beginner level classes except the prong classes and students are encouraged to bring their own stones to wrap in class! No stones? I have plenty for you to choose from and they are free!
ANOTHER NEW CLASS!!! More prongs but this time for facetted stones! Only 2 base wires and 1 wrap wire and you create a style that is secure and beautiful! This wrap lets so much more light in than other wraps and it is easy! 6 pages of instructions with illustrations will help you remember what you did when you get home. My exclusive design is yours in this fun and easy class! All day class $75! Bring your stones and a lunch and lets have fun!
My new studio is finally finished but has been taken over by the quilt group I host every month! S000..... I am teaching in the dining room! 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
