Recently I read a post which mentioned that it might be fun to attend a wire wrapping class, and be taught how to perform a basic, simple, wire wrap.
Well, I thought to myself, why not put a video series together (6 videos, 1 hour total long) to demonstrate what I recently learned.
Anyone could learn to wrap, without leaving their home. You could fast forward, rewind, pause, or rewatch any part of the tutorial at your own leisure. And it would be like you were there, next to me looking over my shoulder the whole time.
Well, this is it... Well, my effort of "it" at least.
Section 1 - Intro and Tools needed
Section 2 - Materials and Set Up
Section 3a - (video 1 of 2) - Creating the Framework
Section 3b - (video 2 of 2) - Creating the Framework
Section 4 - Forming the Bail
Section 5 - Accents, Final wraps, and Outro
As many of you already know, I am a beginner. And there are all kinds of things that would probably make an expert cringe in the videos. Sorry. I am trying my best.
But a final result is created. I will post a picture of this result as soon as I have taken one.
( picture goes here )
This was an effort over a full day. 3 hours to shoot, and 8 hours to edit, along with 4 hours to post. I am not a Youtube professional so I did my best.
There is about 1 hour of total tutorial here. I edited it down from 3 hours. It can be viewed at leisure, and I am positive that if you follow the steps here, that you will have a finished product that you are proud of!
Warning: Filming this was not comfortable, and I had to stretch my arms out in front of a camera for many hours. There are some short sections out of frame. I was so tired from this effort, at hour 2 and past, this occurred a few times. Plus, I am working with 18 gauge, half-hard wire, so it can easily be seen. As you know, it is hard to bend. Thank you for your patience.
