Workshops on the Wharf - Bubble Maker

Once again the lovely ladies at the Workshops on the Wharf put together another great day of making Bubble Makers out from wire and beads.  These are so easy and the kids make them truely unique by the collection of beads they want to use.  There were some fantastic patterns happening!

A length of wire of approx 400mm was cut, then one end 'curled over' to form a stopping loop for the beads.  Then the beads were threaded to make the handle to whatever length was wanted, and the final 'bubble' loop was then formed and twisted around just above the last bead.  It was that easy and I even found myself making these!  We even made different versions to try and make 'double bubbles' so the possibilities are endless!
