About the Course

Copper wire is a wonderful medium with which to make structured decorative jewellery or home decor items. Combined with semi precious stones or Austrian and Czech glass crystal beads you can learn to make a unique piece to give as a special present perhaps for a valentine or anniversary gift.

This one day beginners level wire weaving course focuses on learning wire weaving techniques, and how to create a heart shaped frame to weave into either a pendant, key ring or mini sun catcher.

In the first part of the course you will learn the techniques to make a heart shaped frame as the main structure to your piece. In the second part of the course you will learn wire weaving techniques and have a chance to practice this before weaving the frame. You will then have the chance to add spiral decoration, gemstones and crystals to your work to finish off the piece.

By the end of the day you will be able to to:
1. Fashion a heart shaped wire frame in preparation for wire weaving.
2. Master the correct tension and techniques for wire weaving
3. Be able to weave two to three wire weaving patterns.
4. Be able to decorate the wire woven heart with gemstones and crystals

This course runs from 09.30 - 15.30 and is aimed at those who have undertaken some wirework before, but have not necessarily done any wire weaving. Before undertaking this course it is advised that you are able to form basic loops, wrapped loops and spirals, or have undertaken our Introduction to copper wire and bead jewellery 1 day course.

The course is set on our beautiful boat with views overlooking the river Thames in Gloucestershire. Places on each course are limited to ensure everyone gets individual attention, I keep classes to a minimum and take two people only on each. Therefore, to ensure that you reserve a place on your preferred date, I recommend that you book early by emailing us using the 'Contact' form above. I keep my classes very small. I only take two people on each course to ensure plenty of individual attention.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

The use of all tools and materials to complete the projects are included in the price. However, there is the opportunity to purchase further wirework kits and materials on the day.

Please note that tea and coffee are provided, but please bring your own packed lunch.

We would also like you to know that we do have a cat on board. He is friendly and generally will keep out of the way. But we highlight this in case anyone has an allergy to cats. I'm afraid we can't put him anywhere else for the day.
