Make your special day truly personal. Come to Silverpetal Studio to make your own pair of silver wedding rings. This workshop is held 10am to 3pm on either a Saturday or Sunday on a date to suit.
This is a lovely memorable day out together, learning a new skill and making your Wedding rings together for your special day.
This day also gives you the optional, unique opportunity to engrave the inside of your rings. This could be the date of your special day, your names or a special (short!) message. If you are interested in engraving your rings it is a good idea to come along on the day with some ideas. You will be given complete guidance on how to use our hand engraver.
What will we do on the day?
We will start this day by engraving the inside of your rings and learning how to solder. We will be practising first – on copper sheet. Then you will be shown how to shape your rings in to a band. Next we will finish and polish the metal to give it a wonderful sheen. Finally you can choose the shape of your rings. Either a curved or straight profile as the picture here.
What is included?
The price for this workshop is per couple. All materials are included to make your silver wedding rings. You will have access to all the tools and machinery in our fully equipped jewellery making workshop. Tea, coffee and other refreshments, including biscuits are available throughout the day. We will end the day with afternoon tea and cakes. Your rings will be mounted in plush velvet boxes to take home ready for the big day.
At Lunch Time
We can have up to an hour lunch break. A cafe and picnic area are next to the studio where lunch can be purchased or a pack-up may be eaten (weather permitting) Our studio is situated alongside the canal. This is a great place for a picnic or a short stroll for some fresh air during lunchtime. There is also a Morrisons Supermarket with a cafe a short drive away.
Who can attend?
This workshop is open to complete beginners. You don’t need to have any ability or prior experience of metal working or jewellery making. Full instruction and guidance will be provided by your experienced tutor throughout the day. You will be personally guided through each step, ensuring that both of you successfully complete a wonderful piece of jewellery for your wedding.
