During this informative and friendly class, you will be guided through the traditional silversmithing techniques of making your own sterling ring shank and then choosing from a range of colours of gemstones (e.g., amethyst, labradorite, carnelian, malachite, turquoise etc), make a bezel cup to encase your gem and solder on to the shank. This workshop is suitable for beginners and improvers alike. Students can progress onto further workshops to make bangles, earrings and pendants.
Please wear closed in shoes and apron (if desired) and a scrunchie to tie back long hair.
Windows in all rooms will be opened to improve circulation so you may want to bring an extra layer of clothing such as a light jumper or cardigan.
