Sterling Silver: Advanced Jewellery Workshop

September 14 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Remember making all of those delicious Sterling Silver rings? Come and spend another day working with precious silver, only this time you will learn a bezel setting technique and create your very own stone set ring.
Rachel will also teach you how to make another piece, be it a cuff, pendant or set of earrings as well. This extra piece will allow you to design and create your own unique precious keepsake.

This workshop is only for those who have already attended previous Sterling Silver Ring Making Workshops. Students will revisit the steps and create new ring bands to go along with their stones, so they will already be familiar with the techniques and processes needed for these creations.

The workshop fee includes:

  • All base metal sheet and wire needed to create your ring.
  • All tools and equipment needed to construct your ring.

The workshop has been capped at six participants in order to provide a relaxed and attentive setting in which participants will be introduced to the joy of working with metal to create jewellery.

Dress Code:

  • Covered shoes (no open toes or thongs)
  • Sensible clothing for a metal workshop environment. (Fitted clothing with no loose sleeves is best option.)
  • All long hair must be tied back. – No loose jewellery, especially bangles or necklaces.
  • An apron of some sort, if desired.

Part of the workshop will involve the use of a high speed polishing wheel and a jewellers gas torch, which is used to heat metal to very high temperatures. It is requested that participants please exercise a high level of care in regards to their personal safety when using this apparatus and attend the workshop dressed in an appropriate manner.

A minimum deposit of 25% must be paid before Tuesday 10th September to secure a place in this course.
