Community Celebration Talk/Workshop Visual Art

Make your very own brand-new piece of jewellery in just two hours with this workshop for complete beginners. You will learn how to make a silver ring from scratch and get to take it home with you on the day!

Choose from a selection of samples, find your finger size, then you’re ready to get making! We will take you through this exciting process step by step until you’ve made your very own piece of silver jewellery.

When you make a ring, you’re introduced to the classic techniques that go into jewellery making. This includes sawing, annealing, shaping, forming, soldering and finishing. You get to wield hammers, saws and play with FIRE!

16+ only. If you need glasses to see things close up, please bring them with you. Making jewellery is fiddly!
