Workshop – Making a silver base ring

How about creating a silver base ring and getting an introduction to goldsmithing at the same time?

During this 2.5 hour workshop you will make your own silver base ring. While creating your ring, the teacher will teach you a large number of goldsmithing techniques. You will adjust the ring size of your ring so that it will fit your own finger. You will learn how to file, saw and sand. You will also learn how to finish your ring by choosing between polishing, matting and a nice hammer blow. This workshop is a pleasant introduction to the craft of goldsmithing, and when the workshop comes to an end, you will have a self-made silver base ring to take home.

The participation costs for the 2.5 hour workshop are € 55.- per person. A workshop will take place with a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 participants.
