    As I am using a number of widgets in the sidebar, I would like to be able to visually separate them (perhaps with a inconspicuous line or similar).

    Here is my sidebar at the moment:

    How would I go about creating some sort of visual separator between widgets?

    These will be CSS customizations you’ll need to make to the theme. For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the overriding edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    For example, using our inspector we can get a good idea of a selector we could use to possibly apply a border, background, etc.

    #sidebar .widget { ... }

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
