Duration: A day
at Cowshed Creative (Kentmere Farm Pods and Creative Courses)
About the Course
Intriguing to make, a silver spinner ring is both fashionable and mystical. Two different rings are made and fitted together so that the smaller ring can spin, when moved, around the larger ring. This spinning motion is believed to have a calming effect on the wearer.
Come and learn a range of jewellery making techniques in just one day – whether you are a beginner, a more experienced maker, or someone who likes creating one-off pieces. With lots of opportunities to customise your design, it's a great way to spend a day and create a unique and original silver ring.
Amanda Hunter, is a jeweller and educator who loves to teach people how to make jewellery. She has been running her own jewellery business, Passion Flower Studio, for 9 years and specialises in making individual pieces in silver and gold. A key feature of her work is surface texture created using natural and found objects.
This workshop will be at Cowshed Creative, based in a traditional converted Lakeland barn at Browfoot Farm. The art studio is a stunning open plan space with plenty of room to wander outside and take inspiration from the amazing Lakeland landscape and environment of the peaceful Kentmere valley. Make it a special break and stay on the farm.
