Learn artisan silversmithing techniques and a little of the history of silver and hallmarking.
Enjoy homemade cake, shortbread and refreshments whilst you work.
At the end of the workshop you’ll not only have some lovely personalised jewellery to take away, but also a huge sense of well being, pride and achievement.
The cost of the workshop is £88 which includes everything you need plus refreshments and Wendy’s infamous homemade cake* Pay a £25 booking fee now and the balance just before the day.
(* vegan cake available if you let me know in advance)
There is plenty of free parking outside and a Tesco shop next door for sandwiches if you get peckish before 1pm.
If you are making your ring or bangle for someone else it’s important you try to find out their size...
Bring either a ring that fits the person with you, or get their ring size measured at a jeweller, or wrap a study piece of wire around their finger and twist. It should go on and off easily, bringing it with you on the day. Alternatively bring a ring that fits from the person you’re making it for with you.
