Create solid sterling silver rings from scratch using traditional silversmithing techniques. In this workshop, suitable for absolute beginners, Noctua’s friendly tutors Britt and Andrew will be on hand at all times. Closely guiding you through each step, they will ensure each person makes their own ring(s) entirely by themselves.
There is the option to make either two slim stacking rings with a semi-precious stone, or a wider ring with added texture. All the rings are made of sterling silver.
You will start off by sizing the ring, measuring the silver needed, filing, shaping the silver, using a blowtorch to solder it, adding unique textures with our collection of hammers, polishing the ring to your desired shine and finally setting the stone (the traditional way – without glue!).
The course takes place 11am-1:30pm on Sunday November 24th and costs £60 per person. To book click here.
This workshop is aimed at complete beginners but all are welcome. This is a very hands-on class. If you normally wear glasses for reading, we recommend you bring these. Please wear old clothes and closed-toed shoes. Long hair must also be tied back. We currently have no strict age limit on classes but please email us before booking a space for anyone under the age of 16 just to confirm this with us.
Brittany Kefira is a young self taught silversmith, who relocated to Cornwall when she was 19 to train as a goldsmith. She has recently returned to the North West to teach workshops and focus on her own jewellery collections.
