Learn how to make your own Sterling Silver (with a bit of copper if you wish) Spinner Ring.
The workshop is ideal for complete beginners or those that have attended our Trio of Stacker Ring workshop.
You will measure your fingers and calculate the length of silver required to make your rings, prepare the silver and solder the ring before shaping and texturing it.
You will be guided through every stage offering support as needed. Where soldering is required, Kathy will sit with each person until they feel confident.
Please note that your pieces will not be available to take home on the day as they need to be cleaned and polished in Kathy's workshop. They will be returned to Workshop & Play Studio within one week for collection (or additional cost for signed for postage if beyond 12 miles of Shefford, or collection)
By the end of the workshop, you will have learned how to: 1. Prepare Sterling silver 2. Design & create your piece 3. Add texture 4. Solder using solder paste and a blowtorch 5. The processes for finishing
All materials, equipment, tuition and finishing are included in the cost of the workshop.
