Silver Stacking Rings Workshop with Lindsay Forbes of Laconic; Darlington

Trio of stacking rings


Join experienced jeweller/goldsmith Lindsay Forbes, jeweller and founder of Laconic jewellery, as she guides you this introduction course working with wire and silver. Learn some ring making basics; measuring your ring size, bending and shaping silver wire, basic soldering techniques, texturing techniques and finishing. These all combine to create your own unique set of silver stacking rings!

You will learn how to make one ring in copper first before choosing which patterned/plain wire you'd like to create your rings in. You can expect to make between 2-3 silver rings on this course, depending upon how much time you take to make each one.

The Venue:
Lot 64 is a craft gallery and retail space in the centre of Darlington offering a range of craft workshops. There is limited parking in and around the gallery itself. The best place to park would be at Feethams multi storey car park. It is within walking distance of the town centre, less than 10 minutes from the bus station.

The work area and tools will be sanitised before the start of each session, I kindly ask that you sanitise the tools after use too.

The course was pitched at the right level. The Tutor was patient and made time for each person. It was interesting and the techniques were clearly explained. The equipment was provided and I came away with some great jewellery. Thank you.
