Silver Ring or Bangle Workshop
Tuesday 12th July 10am - 1.30pm (3:30pm if creating both Ring and Bangle)
Make your own personalised sterling silver ring or bangle under the expert tuition and supportive guidance of Wendy Murphy from WMM Silver.
During the workshop, you will be taught all the skills you need to size, cut, file, solder and polish your ring or bangle. You can also add a texture to your piece and lettering and symbols on the inside.
Always enjoyed, with very proud and satisfied students – this is suitable for beginners or returners alike.
The cost of this workshop is inclusive of all materials.
If you choose to create both the ring and bangle the cost of this workshop also includes a delicious light lunch. Please inform our team of any allergies or dietary requirements when you book your place. Refreshments are included for all students.
The workshop may finish before the programmed end time if a smaller group has booked.
