Description

Welcome to the Domed Ring Class!

This is a hands-on class where you'll be creating your own one-of-kind domed Sterling silver ring.
You will be starting from raw materials- shaping the dome, making the band, soldering, hammering, filing, setting, polishing and finishing until you have a gorgeous piece you'll be proud to show family and friends.

I believe that we learn better when we're laughing, so bring your sense of play with you and join me at Gilded Poppy Makery for a day of creating and laughs.


See you soon,

Storm

What you will learn

  • So many things to learn (or refresh!) in this class! you will learn the traditional metalsmith arts of sawing, filing , soldering, setting, texturing and polishing, all with a few good belly laughs and a day of relaxed fun.

What you will get

  • You'll be with me from 10am to 5pm (unless you're all speedy and we finish up earlier!) so I'll have morning tea ready for you when you get here. Coffee and tea are available for you at anytime, and when we break for lunch, there are a number of cafes and eateries nearby, or you can bring your own lunch if you perfer.

What to bring

  • A full kit of materials is included in your class fee, and tools will be provided.

What to wear

We are working with fire and really hot metal, so there are a few things that we have to do before we start. 1) Long hair must be tied back, with no stragglers. Headbands are great to keep it from falling forward of your face. 2) Clothes should be of natural materials: Cotton, bamboo, hemp, wool etc. Polyester and Nylon are made from plastic- and plastic melts if something hot lands on it! Sleeves need to be rolled back out of the way. T-shirt and jeans are a great choice, with a flannel shirt if it’s a bit chilly. (I will have an apron here to cover your clothes, so you don’t have to bring your own.) 3) Just like our bodies, our feet need protecting too. Tools are sharp, things are hot, and everything falls downwards if we fumble, so closed toe shoes are a must. Boots, sneakers- anything without gaps will do. 4) Personal jewellery should have as little ‘dangle’ as possible.

Appropriate for

This is a confident beginner to intermediate class, available to those from years 16 and up.

It's fair to say that there is something for everyone, and you won't be bored any time soon!

Gilded Poppy Makery is a warm, inclusive place where learning is fun and mistakes are celebrated as 'Design Features' (we have a sticker with that very thing on it!). Bring your curiosity and a sense of humour and join us at the workbench.

I'm looking forward to meeting you all,
