It is our pleasure to share a fabulous tool designed by Gwen Youngblood, a delightful teacher who solved the riveting problems that plague so many artists.
Gwen is the inventor of the Riveting Essentials tools – a set of tools that makes riveting easy and nearly foolproof.
As Gwen said recently:
“These are the tools for riveting that I have been trying to find for years. In my own work, they let me handle riveting tasks that I always thought were too difficult. In the classroom, these tools have changed riveting for my students. The beginner student will be amazed at their instant riveting success. I love that “A-HA!” moment, when students realize how simple riveting can be with these tools!”
With Gwen’s “Riveting Essentials”, now you can make rivets that are perfect and fit, every time. No more bent-over, clunky wires which you try to pass off as rivets. (Not that we’ve ever done that, of course!)
With the ingenious addition of the exactly proportioned plates which show how long to cut the riveting wire or tubing to produce a perfect rivet each time, your work can achieve the layered look with multiple metals and elements. You too, can become a Riveting Queen and expand your designs into a whole new realm. The kits are now available through Wubbers University here.
Let Gwen show you how to use this invaluable tool with step-by-step instructions in any one of these classes below. Not a member of Wubbers University? Sign up for a free account, and use the enrollment key wubu2.
