About Dean Bennett

deanDean Bennett has been collecting and using stones for jewelry all his adult life. He was fortunate six years ago to take a basic wire wrapping class and since that time has advanced artistically with his own techniques. He has taught numerous wrapping classes in northern Utah senior centers and in his home. Students will learn basic traditional principles while completing a piece to wear and be proud of. Most wire artists develop their own styles and techniques having learned the basic foundation methods. Dean’s classes emphasize that goal. Tools furnished for classroom use without charge. Samples of class projects will be on display.
