A 1-day introductory course where you will experience the use of a range of jewellery tools and techniques to make a simple but beautiful sterling silver ring.

Our taster classes are perfect for absolute beginners with no previous experience. There are no formal entry requirements for this course. You do not need to be artistic or creative - you’ll be surprised what you can create under the guidance of our expert tutors.

The workshop begins with short, structured technical exercises and lots of material play in the morning. Then fabricating, decorating and joining will be demonstrated. You will be guided through the following techniques in this one day workshop:

  • Saw piercing - Become proficient in setting up and using the jeweller's piercing saw to cut metal to size.

  • Annealing/ Soldering - You will gain an understanding in how to gently heat your metal to soften it, allowing you to then decorate and shape your metal. You will learn how to measure a ring size; form, shape and use a hand held oxy/gas torch to solder your silver ring.

  • Texturing – You can add texture to your ring through a variety of different tools.

  • Finishing - You will acquire knowledge of how to file and polish your finished design and introduce colour to your work using patination techniques.

All materials are included. Including sterling silver to make your ring, copper sheet, brass sheet and consumables (saw blades, emery paper, patina).
