“I have used numerous tutorials in the ten years I have been working with wire. This has to be one of the most complete and concise set of instructions I have seen to date. Very thorough information to complete the project. I highly recommend anyone who works with wire to try one of the Earth Balance tutorials.”
“Beautiful product, the perfect gift for craft lovers”
“Such a great project – we ordered the dragonfly and robin as a lockdown birthday activity and we loved it – we have never worked with wire before so had to get used to it but it was well worth it. The instructions were clear and the packaging was so lovely, clearly marked with what every envelope contained. It was so nice to have something tangible at the end of a morning’s work, highly recommend! (There were a few tools we did not have, but the downloadable instructions gave plenty of household substitutes and it worked perfectly :-)”
“Beautifully well put together kit. Extremely pleased and cannot wait to get started. Fantastic gift for anyone.”
You are also provided with set of four wire working tools, which will help you handle and form the copper wire. Some additional tools are needed as it is not possible to provide these in the kit. Where possible alternatives have been noted in the tutorial, advising how to use bits and bobs from around the house as a wire hack!
The box will be posted out in a jiffy bag, so that the white box becomes part of the gift itself. Each of the materials and tools provided within the box are wrapped and labelled, which creates an exciting unboxing experience like opening a treasure chest of goodies! Please let me know if you would like a gift message included.
