Making a silver ring is the perfect introduction to a Gold and Silversmithing workshop.
During the one day workshop, participants will be shown step by step the process of making a silver band. This process involves several manufacturing basic skills, including but not limited to soldering, annealing, saw piercing, polishing, measurement tricks and tips with stamping and texturing also a possibility.
Each individuals ring can be customised in width, profile, size, texture and finish.
The workshop day begins at 10am with the morning session focussing on measurement, annealing and soldering.
We break for 1 hour for lunch to stretch and refresh for the second half of the day.
After lunch participants will shape, file and finish their rings with their desired customisation.
At the end of the session you will leave with your own finished silver ring, and a skill set that you can apply to further studio lessons or enhance your own craft practice.
$250 - Includes all required materials, tools, personalised instruction and light refreshments.
