I have been approached by a local grassroots non-profit to teach
jewelry classes to the mentally ill population. There is not much of
a budget, and the folks running the center really don’t want any
So I am wondering what I could teach. I have experience in wire
wrap, and this would answer a variety of needs, i.e., low budget, few
tools needed, little workspace needed. But beyond that I am not
coming up with much, except maybe some hammer-textured rings and/or
cuff bracelets, and some experimenting with cold connections.
What would you all suggest for beginning jewelry classes with
nothing dangerous (no torches or acids) and minimal tools?
