Pinning the Donut Ring
This is a fun, quirky class where we’ll be learning how to create an inner structure to support our stone, leaving the entirety of the outside of the stone, open to view. Techniques will include forming, soldering, riveting, shaping, and setting, so buckle up and get ready for a fun class at Gilded Poppy Makery!
What you will learn
- It's not often that we step out of the traditional setting mould and do something fun! Invisible setting of this sort is a great way to make a unique looking talking piece, so bring your sense of humour and get ready to play!
What you will get
- You'll be with me from 10:00 am to 6: 00 pm (unless you're all speedy and we finish up earlier!) so I'll have coffee and tea 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 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.

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 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. Charm bracelets and chunky rings are gorgeous but get i
This class encompasses both beginner and intermediate level students. You will need to be over 16yrs old and able to concentrate for the full day. Bring your sense of humour for a day of laughs and learning!
