10:00 am - 12:30 pm
This workshop is suitable for kids aged 8+ and my studio allows 5 kids maximum (with or without an adult attending).
I will show you how to measure, saw, stamp and solder sterling silver wire to create a personalized ring using pattern and letter stamps, or texture it using different types of hammer or a rolling mill. The finished rings will be polished up by the end of the session and ready to take home.
Kids can come alone or accompanied by an adult. If the adult wishes to make a ring too, there is an added charge for materials. If the adult is coming to help their child and not make anything, there is no extra cost.
You will be using a saw, hammers and a blowtorch (fully supervised) so full use of the hands is required for this workshop. Long hair must be tied back.
