This old craft is part of the tradition of making beautiful and useful objects for everyday use using one’s hands and simple tools. Farmers used wires mend fences and make basic tools around the farm. Leftover bits of wire were used to make household items like whisks, cake tickles, trivets, or egg holders. More decorative items like candle holders, baskets, and hanging birds and other decorations were also commonly made. The design of wire items is really limited only by one’s imagination. After a talk and exhibit of luffarslojd items, each person will make a basic hook or two to take home. All tools and materials will be provided. Must pre-register as space is limited.
