About the Event
How many times have you found a ring you like and it doesn't fit? Or it's not quite what you are looking for?
Well there's a solution... make one yourself. In this is a 2 hour practical silver jewellery making workshop you will learn the basics of silver jewellery, using sterling silver and all the tools of the trade.
In the course of the class you will learn to:
- Thread a piercing saw
- Size your rings
- How to cut your ring to size
- Solder using a blow torch
- Shape using a hammer and mandrel
- File and finish
- Add detail and texture
At the end you will have your very own ring to take home and show off your handy work to friends.
Forest is a horticulture lovers heaven. Based in the arches of Deptford, right next to the DLR station, your class will take place surrounded by stunning hanging plants, large cacti and huge leaves. It's a wonderful venue for your class to take place.
Just don't blame me if you end up walking out with a new plant as well as a new ring. I've done it many times.
