Start by learning how to make a simple silver band and then spice things up by learning how to set your choice of semi-precious stone on the top! With a range of both stones and textures for the silver to choose from, everyone will leave with a beautiful and unique piece of jewellery.
The class is perfect for beginners to jewellery making as it teaches many of the basic skills needed for more advanced skills, and is a great introduction to stone setting. However those with previous experience will also find their skills tested and improved by the end of the session. Depending on time you will also have the opportunity to make a second plain silver ring to wear stacked with your stone-set ring.
Only 8 places are available to ensure that everyone gets the help and attention they need.

Materials are available for purchase on the day. The exact cost of the materials will be determined by the size and therefore weight of the ring you make and the price of silver on the day, and also the cost of the stone that you choose. However material costs for most rings in the range of £8-£12, and they would normally retail at between £30 and £40.
Tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits are in plentiful supply, but please bring your own lunch. We are a peanut-free venue, thank you.

From start to finish this has been he best workshop I have taken. The venue was lovely, tools and equipment in abundance. Jo was very warm, helpful and so relaxed in her approach. We all received a details booklet with instructions to take away. The tuition was amazing, Jo helped us all when we needed it and gave very clear instructions. We weren't rushed and we all completed our beautiful rings. I didn't think it was possible to make such lovely rings first time around. I would highly recommend this course. I booked immediately for the wave ring course and can't wait to attend. Amazing day.
Response from Joanne Tinley Jewellery:Thank you so much for your lovely review Marie! It was a pleasure having you in the workshop, and I am so impressed with the lovely rings everyone made.
I recently attended a stone setting course with Joanne and had such a great time ! Jo was calm, sweet and attentive. There were 8 of us on the course and I didn't feel as though I had to wait for Jo to assist me at any point, she was on hand each time I had a question. I learnt a lot and have already begun practicing at home. Such a lovely day. I would very highly recommend Jo and her courses :)
Response from Joanne Tinley Jewellery:Thank you for your kind review Charlie. It was lovely to meet you, and I am impressed that you made not one but two stone set rings! They look beautiful together. Keep up the practice at home!
Another excellent course with Jo. This was my third visit to Jo’s studio and what a great day. Jo is a great teacher, really knows her stuff and is very generous with her knowledge. I learnt a lot. Thank you.

A great workshop with a great teacher. I've now enjoyed two courses with Jo - with another three booked. Superb.

I had a great day learning how to make a stone set ring with Jo! The studios make a lovely space to hold a workshop and I'm so proud of my finished rings!

A lovely day out. Jo is a great teacher and even I managed to make a beautiful ring which I am very proud of.
Response from Joanne Tinley Jewellery:Thank you very much for your kind words Jocelyn! It was lovely to welcome you back to the studio. You are right to be proud of your ring - it is beautiful!
This is the second workshop I completed with Jo and was just as brilliant! Jo is such a good teacher and made me feel really at ease, even while doing the really fiddly bits! I absolutely love my ring and can’t believe I made it myself! Highly recommend any of Jo’s workshops :)
