You will be welcomed by Sarah or Violeta at 10 am and served tea or coffee and by 5:30 pm you will have made your Wedding Rings! Why not make each other’s rings?
Using traditional silversmithing techniques and tools you will learn how to cut out your silver ring with a jewellers’ saw. You will file it to the perfect shape. Then using a blowtorch, you will learn the annealing technique which is used to soften the metal so that it can be shaped using jewellers’ hammers and a mandrel. The challenging part is the soldering of the ring, you will be given step-by-step guidance. You will be given plenty of opportunities to experiment with textures on a copper sheet before moving on to your silver ring. After practising on some copper, you may choose to add some texturing detail to your ring. Next is the cleaning and refining stage, which can be extremely satisfying if you are a perfectionist!
Take a look at our Pinterest Boards to see examples of wedding rings that are achievable during your workshop.
