This is a beautiful, ancient way to add definition and flair to beads and sea glass for a necklace, earrings and key ring. Wire wrapped jewellery dates back to 1446 BC found in ancient Egyptian pharaohs' tombs and pyramids. Gold was likely to be the first metal used, but we will be using other metals. We will look at various techniques, in a wide range of styles and colours of beads and wire. All materials and tools are included, but if you have a crystal, you may want to bring it along. No prior knowledge is required and this workshop is suitable for all levels. Age 14+ £30
