Always enjoyed with very proud and satisfied customers. The workshop cost includes all materials, sundries, insurance, refreshments and lunch.
Talton Mill is set in the beautiful and peaceful Warwickshire countryside – an ideal venue for a day away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to learn some basics of this ancient and artisan craft.
Here’s a little explanation of what goes on at this workshop and some images of previous students’ work. ” Make your own “
If you are making your ring and/or bangle for someone else it’s important you try to find out their size...
For a ring: 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. Bring the “ring” with you on the day.
For a bangle: Bring either a bangle that fits or measure from the middle of the outside knuckles of their hand when clenched. It should fall between the range of approx 60mm to 70mm. Average is 66mm.
