Silver Ring Making Workshop

Join Creative Village for an introductory workshop to silversmith at Base Camp.

Base Camp

30th March 2022 - 6:00pm - 8:30pm

Creative Village is a community interest company who have been delivering art based workshops in the Teesside area for the past 9 years. Directors Lucy & Jess are both jewellers and would love to share their passion for making with you!
You will learn silversmithing techniques including texturing metal, shaping and forming, measuring, soldering, polishing and finishing.

Each attendee will have the opportunity to practice soldering with a copper template ring to get the hang of using a blow torch before trying it on silver.

During this workshop we will use a copper sheet to practice patterning the metal and personalising using metal letter stamps. When you feel confident we will then work with 925 sterling silver to make your final ring, which will be measured to size. If you are making the ring for yourself you can measure your ring size in the session, if the ring is for someone else please find out their ring size before the session (any high street jewellers can measure ring size).

You will polish & finish your silver ring in the session and take it home with you the same night.

Due to silversmithing methods this workshop can get a quite noisy when we are using hammers to shape & pattern the metal. Don’t worry, you will enjoy it, even if you do have a slight headache at the end, it will all be worth it!

You don’t need to bring anything, all materials & tools are included in this workshop.

No previous experience needed but good fine motor skills are required due to the nature of the workshop.
Booking is essential, limited spaces available.
If you need to cancel your place please email or text or call Lucy 07735222372 as soon as you can.
