The Artsmiths of Pittsburgh says
CLASS DESCRIPTION Love the look of Czech glass and vintage buttons, but aren't sure how to use them? Maria will teach you her method of creating a beautiful woven wire bezel around an amazing button complete with a bail that will accommodate chain, cord, or ribbon. Kit supplied will be copper, but silver-filled wire will be available at additional cost.

INSTRUCTOR Artist Maria Richmond draws her inspiration from the possibilities she sees in ordinary objects and materials. While she plays with wire, she often envisions unique ways of combining traditional, repurposed, and found objects into her creations. She regularly teaches in Western Pennsylvania, as well as other venues. She teaches basic and intermediate techniques in a relaxed atmosphere. Her goal is to help her students find their own creative voice and the endless possibilities in the seemingly mundane.
