EL Wire Soldering Class and Costuming Playshop
There will be an elwire class at crashspace on the 14th of August.
i'll sell kit for those last minute projects and teach folks how to solder the stuff with durability and ease.
EL wire is simple in concept, but any who have tried know those little hairs are a huge pain. I’ll share some tips, tricks, and techniques to create the strong connections and wicked safe ends.
I’ve been playing with EL wire in costumes for 9 years and learned from the best. I have several pieces that have latest the entire time.
If you need some EL Wire, we’ll have some $20 kits on hand for the class.
