The Ring Workshop is back at Artfix Cafe for a second time. Learn how to make your very own silver ring, from soldering to shaping.
How many times have you found a ring you like and it doesn’t fit? Or have you found a ring that’s great but it’s not real silver so turns your finger green?
Well there’s a solution… make one yourself. In this is a 2 hour practical silver jewellery making workshop you will learn the basics of silver jewellery, using sterling silver and all the tools of the trade.
In the course of the class you will learn to:
– Thread a piercing saw
– Size your rings
– How to cut your ring to size
– Solder using a blow torch
– Shape using a hammer and mandrel
– File and finish
– Add detail and texture
At the end you will have your very own ring to take home and show off your handywork to friends.
