This coming Monday night I’ll be teaching a class of approximately 40 students how to make a birds nest pendant. I have to admit, I’m more than a little scared. What was I thinking? I’ve never taught anything to a whole class! I turned down the last invitation to teach because I thought I wasn’t ready. Am I ready now?
This group will be coming from a local rock club and are basically rock hounds. Many may never have worked with wire before. Uh..oh..Will they be able to master the basic spiral? What if they all kink up the weaving wire and it becomes a tangled mess? Will the little pearl eggs end up all over the floor? I’m beginning to panic. Take a deep breath..calm down.
I’ll be handing out a sheet of basic instructions, a zip lock baggy with pre measured lengths of 18 gauge and 24 gauge wire and 3-5 little pearls. What then? Will I freeze up in fear and just stare at all those faces? I guess I’ll have to play it by ear.
Wish me luck!!
