Ring Workshop

Why would anyone ever let someone else make their wedding rings for them?

The ultimate in wedding workshops – making your own wedding rings. Come to our St Ives workshop for six hours of metal working fun. Choose from 925 silver or gold. Let our expert designer and silversmith guide you through sawing, using pliers, soldering and polishing techniques so that you achieve your perfect bands.

 

This special experience is for the couple only.

 

£480 per couple plus materials. This includes a one-hour initial consultation and two workshops – the initial consultation is to enable us to get a feel of the size, style and weight of the metal you’d like and enable us to price the materials for you. Gold is the more expensive option! The first workshop is to practise jewellery and silversmithing techniques to ensure you have honed your skills for the second workshop: making the real bands! A healthy lunch and a glass of bubbly included on both workshop dates.
