Course Overview

On this one day course you will learn how to make a D section ring, hand fabricate a setting in fine silver and set a cabochon stone. This course is a great place to start if you have little to no silver jewellery making experience. You will be guided through the whole process and will take home a beautiful finished silver ring.

It’s a very friendly and relaxed workshop and is a great starting point for working in silver. Our taster classes are an ideal way to try something new and see if you enjoy it, we’re sure you will!

The length of taster classes can vary from 3 hours to a full day.
