The plan Design and create your own made-to-measure sterling silver ring in just one day. Sit at a traditional jeweller’s bench and learn to use precision tools including calipers, files, pliers, hammers, a soldering torch, ring mandrel, punches and more. Choose your own design and finish including textured, brushed, polished, oxidised or fine silver. This workshop is super fun and no previous experience is necessary.

We'll enjoy a gourmet lunch supplied by a local cafe, as well as tea/coffee and afternoon tea during the day.
