Reviewer: Judith from Hubert, NC
I have been searching for video instruction on the art of weaving and coiling as I just couldn't quite grasp the technique in written form. Ms. Manning helps with step-by-step instructions in this series and I enjoyed her wit and honesty throughout the videos. This truly is a winner in my book. If you are wanting to learn weaving and coiling with wire, then this is the series to purchase. Thank you so much for helping me expand my craft of wire sculture. Great job Ms. Manning and Wire-Sculpture!!
