The School’s Wire Class at The Establishment Studios

9 May

Last month I attended The School‘s wire class which was held at The Establishment Studios in Prahran.  It was a thoroughly enjoyable morning of twisting and shaping wire into various words of our choice.  I took away three pieces and a whole lot more ideas.  It was hard not to feel inspired in the studio.  A huge airy space with shelves and shelves of photo props, all of which I would quite happily have taken home with me.  I captured just a few of the pieces to keep the inspiration at the front of my mind!

Inspirations were fed in more ways than one.

Eat written in wire

‘Eat’ was the easier of the pieces I created but ‘sweet dreams’ was my favourite.

One of the best things about the class is it will be so easy to keep practicing at home and there are just so many possibilities.  I have a list of words coming together but if anyone has any suggestions feel free to comment and I’ll do my best to create them.
