Lynn is taking her popular stacking ring workshop on the road to Eclectica of Ludlow! Happening just after the Ludlow Food Festival, when summer is coming to an end, this class is designed especially for the absolutue beginner who has no experience with jewellery or silversmithing. Whether you are looking for a creative experience to enjoy with friends, or an opportunity for you to try something new, this course will give you a hands on chance to give silversmithing a try in a relaxed, small class environment.....
Enjoy a creative few hours at Eclectica of Ludlow and make your very own set of stacking rings! Lynn Davis from Unearthed will be on hand to closely guide you through each step, ensuring you get to make your rings yourself. Make your own set of up to 3 sterling silver stacking rings to take home with you. You can choose to make any combination of:
-a chunky, textured ring,
-a ring will a melted pebble,
-a beaded ring or
-a decorative pattern ring.
The steps include sizing your finger, measuring the amount of silver needed, filing the metal, shaping the ring, using a blowtorch, adding texture, attaching a pebble jewel, and many other skills. Silver and tools are included in the price, and your rings will go home with you, ready to wear at the end of the class!
This workshop typically lasts around 3 - 3 1/2 hours in total and is aimed at complete beginners, but all are welcome. This is a very hands-on class. If you normally wear glasses for reading, we recommend you bring these. The sounds from hammering silver can sometimes be loud - if you have sensitive hearing, you may want to bring ear protection. Please wear old clothes that are not loose and closed-toed shoes. Long hair must also be tied back. We currently have no strict age limit on classes but please email us before booking a space for anyone under the age of 16 just to confirm this with us.
