On this intermediate one-day workshop - suitable for those that have taken the taster workshop or beginners workshop, you will learn how to make two different types of fine silver ring.
Using silver clay, a material made up of recycled silver particles, an organic binder and water your expert tutor jeweller Anna Campbell will take you through all the steps needed to create your own pieces ready for firing.
The projects you will make during this one-day workshop include making a flat band ring, and a D profile ring (see examples above).
You will learn how to design your rings, calculate your size to take shrinkage into account, make your own bespoke pieces and embellish with textures and a gemstone.
Please note: The rings will be taken away for kiln firing at the end of the session and can be collected from The Arienas Collective at an agreed date, or will be posted to an address of your choice within one week of the class. It is recommended that rings are kiln fired rather than torch fired.
If you want to make a ring for someone else please remember to check their ring size before coming!
