Description

Stacked bands are so popular and versatile that they're always a great thing to have in your collection. You can stack them together, split them up to frame and offset other rings and generally play around with the configuration to your hearts content.
These ones have a lovely gemstone or metal accent (your choice) to make them really special.

You'll choose from a great selection of stones when you get to the workshop, to make your rings one of a kind.

Cheers, and I'm looking forward to seeing you at Gilded Poppy Makery

What you will learn

  • This is a fun intro class to ring making. You'll learn how to accurately size a ring to your finger, shap and form your bands, solder on your setting and set your stone.

What you will get

  • You'll be with me from 10 am to 5:30 pm (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 prefer.
Parking Info

Parking is easily available in Dorset Square. If you're coming for a 3 hour class, you can park anywhere the 3 hour limit is sign posted. If you're coming for an all-day class, you can park on the roof level of the Coles Parking Building for free all-day parking.


What to bring

  • Just yourself! 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, and an apron tied over your clothes to stop anything loose from falling forward. T-shirt and jeans are a great choice, with a flannel shirt if itโ€™s a bit chilly. (I will have an apron here to cover your clothes, so you donโ€™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 โ€˜dangleโ€™ as possible. Charm bracelets and chunky rings are gorgeous but get i

Amazing! A fantastic workshop with an excellent teacher. Storm knows her stuff and is quite happy to teach everything she knows. The class was fun with the right amount of students. Everything is covered and Storm makes you feel competent at all stages. I made myself an beautiful set of rings with the sweetest turquoise stone. Highly recommend this workshop, it may ignite a passion lime it has for me.

I had the best time! I created the most beautiful piece, as a total beginner. Storm was so warm and knowledgeable ~ I really just wanted to stay..maybe just grab my pjs ๐Ÿ’— I'll be back for another day of creating, of fun, learning new skills and the company of Storm and classmates (yo RHonda!) Honestly felt like we'd all known each other for years. Highly highly recommended ๐Ÿ’“
