On this one day course you will learn how to make a square or round section ring with a tube setting for a faceted stone. Our taster courses are a great place to start if you have little to no silver jewellery making experience. You will be guided through the whole process and take home a beautiful finished silver ring with a faceted stone setting.
It’s a very friendly and relaxed workshop and is a perfect 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!
This is a 5 hour 1 day taster class starting at 10am with a half hour lunch break around 12.30pm. You will need to bring a packed lunch. We have a hot water dispenser so please feel free to bring your own cup, teabag or coffee along with milk and sugar if required.
We usually run several taster classes throughout the year if our schedule permits. View all Taster Classes.
Silver and 1 stone is included in the cost of the course, either semi-precious or Cubic Zirconia.
Semi-precious stones available include; peridot, amethyst, sky blue topaz and citrine. We also stock a selection of Cubic Zirconia in various colours. Cubic Zirconia are a good stone to practice with, they are easier to work with for a beginner as they are calibrated, hard and less prone to damage.
This course is suitable for beginners. No previous experience making jewellery is necessary to enrol on this course.
