This workshop is a version of what was taught at the 2017 UK Wire Wrapping Retreat.
It is a new way of teaching and learning wire for those who are fairly confident in their skills but need help to learn to realise their own designs.
As a guide to help you decide whether you can do this workshop if you have done In the Studio 01 tutorial available from our etsy store GlastoWireStudioUK then you are ready for this workshop. If you are confident with coiling, wrapping, weaving and making pendants but would like to be able to make your own designs then you are ready for this workshop too.
This workshop will aim to show you some of the rudimentary skills to get you started making your own design in sterling silver.
You will sketch and plan and make your design under the watchful and helpful eye of Lonely Soldier Designs.
This is where LS Designs is really in his element helping students to become designers in their own right, a really inspiring and creative experience for anyone who joins us.

Want to review this course?

I have been making jewellery for several years and have taught wirework and beginner silver jewellery courses myself, but I learnt many new things on this workshop. New skills, shortcuts, equipment tips and weaving techniques. Jim (Lonely Soldier Designs) is a patient, and inspiring tutor. Clear written worksheets also support you on the course but leave room for you to develop your own style within the tutorial.


Cannot recommend this course enough. It teaches techniques that I haven't see anywhere else, and also encourages you to come up with your own designs. The initial premise of the pendant is not too complicated for those familiar with coils, basic soldering and weaving, but with your imagination, and the readily available support of Jim (Lonely Soldier Designs) there is no limit to the type of pendants that you can make. Even if you haven't done any soldering before, this is your chance to learn to make a simple claw setting for a cabochon. The course is also a great opportunity to meet other like minded people who love to create with wire.
