Make a silver spinning ring silversmithing workshop
In this workshop you will have the freedom to design and make a fidget spinning ring made from sterling silver. You will have the choice to personalize this with multiple thin spinning bands made from silver, copper or brass along with a selection of textured wire. You can choose to have semi-precious stone accents and create a unique mismatched or classic design. You will start off by sizing the inner band, measuring the silver needed, filing, shaping the silver, using a blowtorch to solder it, adding unique textures with our collection of hammers and polishing the ring to your desired shine. You can then work on the central spinning rings and practice the same techniques, with the option of setting semi-precious gemstone accents (the traditional way - without glue!). To secure the spinning rings in place we will then carefully flare out the inner band to secure the thinner rings. There will be members of the Noctua team at hand throughout this process to support, advise and teach you the skills needed while allowing you to make the ring independently. This is a very interactive workshop but suitable for complete beginners, or people with prior experience of jewellery making. Everyone is welcome! If you need glasses for reading then we recommend you bring them on the day, along with wearing old clothes. You will need to wear closed-toe shoes and tie up long hair. We do not have a strict age limit but please enquire before booking a class for anyone under the age of 16 just to confirm it will be suitable. All under 16’s in the workshop will need to be with a participating adult.
