SOLD OUT
Stacking Rings with Creative Village CIC
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!
Teaming up with Base Camp, Meet & Make sessions will include lots of art disciplines including jewellery, ceramics, print making, textiles and all things handmade.
In the stacking rings workshop you will make 3 sterling silver stacking rings by learning silversmithing techniques including texturing metal, shaping and forming, measuring, soldering, polishing and finishing to make the perfect stack! During this workshop you will use a copper sheet to practice patterning the metal using various surface decoration techniques including different textured hammers, melting metal, cutting and filing. When you feel confident we will then work with 925 sterling silver to start making your 3 stacking rings which will be measured to size. If you are making the ring for yourself there will be ring sizers to measure your finger with 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 rings 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 use of fine motor skills required due to the nature of the workshop.
Booking is essential, limited spaces available.
