Join the truly talented Christian Glover for an informative and compelling day in to the world of working with Silver.
This workshop is suitable for anybody that would like to make their own sterling silver spoon ring but has no prior experience.
You will be guided step by step wise in using traditional techniques like texturing the metal, annealing to ensure the metal is workable and polishing to give a high lustre finished. Using traditional hand tools, you will be able to shape, texture (if desired) and polish the spoon into a beautiful wearable ring that you can take away with you at the end of the day.
Please bring with you £20 - £30 cash for materials. (The majority of the spoons cost £20 however there may be some heavier spoons to choose from on the day depending on stock, maximum cost of spoons will be £30) .
Chris strongly recommends aprons are worn; clothing that is suitable for workshop environment. Sturdy closed toe shoes, absolutely no sandals or flip flops.
There will be two power screw drivers available (with anti-bacteria wipes) for use in polishing however Chris would encourage learners to bring their own so that sharing of equipment is limited.
Please bring a packed lunch.
