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, anniversary, or Mothers Day gift.

This one day wire wrapping course focuses on the techniques of simple wire wrapping around a frame to create changing decoration for the home.

The first part of the course concentrates on making a single wire heart shaped frame using large wire, followed by learning the skills of creating coiled wraps and flourishes with smaller gauge wire to create a flowing pattern or form that you can then attach gemstones and crystal beads to to make a pretty decorative hanging heart.

By the end of the day you will be able to:
1. Fashion single wire frame using large gauge wire
2. form wrap, coils, and flourishes with medium gauge wire
3. Choose suitable gemstones and crystals and attach securely
4. Use jewellery cutting and forming tools

This course is suitable for beginners with no previous knowledge of wire.It is also suitable for those who have taken the Beginners Wirework 1 day course as an intermediary step before taking the Wire Woven Hearts intermediate 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. The course runs from 09.30- 15.30. I keep my classes small, I take a maximum of two people 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.
