Event description

Description

At this workshop you will learn all the skills needed to make a sterling silver band ring to take away at the end of the class. You will be shown how to size and shape your ring, along with the key techniques of hand-sawing, filing and soldering. Once you have been shown the basic method of how to make your ring, you will be able to personalise it how you choose, including the height, finished texture, or maybe add a little heart or star, for example. You will also have the opportunity to set a stone onto your ring in a bezel cup, adding some colour to your design.

At each stage of the process there will be an introduction and demonstration of the techniques required to make the ring of your choice.

The price does not include the cost of materials. All the sterling silver required to make your jewellery can be bought on the day using cash, card or cheque. Approximately £10 of silver will make one ring, depending on the design you choose, adding a stone in a bezel cup will cost an additional £10.

Please arrive at my Studio at 10.50am; it is advisable to wear old clothes, and for health and safety no open toe shoes and long hair to be tied back. Tea, coffee, soft drinks and biscuits will be provided but please bring a packed lunch as this is not included in the day. The studio is on the ground floor.

The closest car park to the Craft Village is the Craft Village section of the Mundy Play Centre car park, DE22 4NH. Turn into the car park off Markeaton Lane, turn right into the right hand corner of the car park and follow the little track round. Once parked, walk through the archway in the wall in the corner and you are outside the Craft Village. Alternative parking is at the main car park, DE22 4AA, entrance off Markeaton Island, A38, with 2m height restriction. The car parks are pay & display, cash payment only.

Any questions you may have beforehand please do not hesitate to contact me - mobile 07970 850615 or email susan@susanhill.co.uk.

I hope you enjoy your workshop!

Kind regards,

Sue!
