About the Course
This fun short taster course will help you find out if you want to learn more about jewellery making. You will be able to make a lovely textured silver wrap ring in just a few hours using traditional methods and hand tools.
Demonstrations will be given on how to apply different texturing techniques to metal which you can try out on copper before committing your final design to silver.
For your final piece you will be given a strip of 6mm wide silver to add your texture to before bending it into your ring shape. There will be no cutting or soldering on this course.

The silver wrap around ring course is a great introduction to jewellery making. Throughout the course you learn lots of new techniques and best of all walk away with a bespoke, personalised ring at the end.
Rose's teaching style is relaxed, well structured and informative. The workshop is excellently kitted out and tea, biscuits and chat are in plentiful supply.
Would definitely recommend.

I really enjoyed this course. Rose is a very thorough, patient teacher & explains every step in the process clearly - not only the how but the why too which is great. I loved the process of practising & deciding on a design for my ring and am so pleased with the result of my labour. It was a relaxing, enjoyable way to spend a Saturday & I hope to book another course next year. Thanks!

I loved this course. I have absolutely no creative skills yet under Rose’s tuition, I made a wrap ring which I am really pleased with and my friends couldn’t believe I’d done it.
Rose is a patient and engaging teacher. She really knows her stuff. She explains things clearly, especially the science bits. She gave us chocolate biscuits and nice tea! Even the building where Rose’s studio is housed is well worth a visit. The ring making course was a great experience and I highly recommend it.

Response from Form & Adorn:Thank you very much for a lovely review. It's good to know I'm on the right track with my teaching methods!
Thoroughly enjoyed the course from start to finish. Superb tuition, most encouraging for a novice like myself. The session was well planned with each stage of the process clearly and patiently explained with plenty of opportunity to practise techniques. The workshop itself is thoughtfully equipped with workshop participants in mind. I'm delighted with the wrap ring I made, hoping to attend another course before too long. Thank you Rose.
