We had two very popular one day Jewellery Making Workshops in June at Hammer & Hand. The Make my own Ring workshop was especially cool – well, check yourself what participants said about them:
I had such a good day at the workshop , very relaxed, great tuition and so awesome to leave with a ring that I am very proud of!
Thanks again and I look forward to my next step into the world of silversmithing! I am very interested in the 7 day course.
Thanks so much for an awesome day. I’m chomping at the bit to get started on my new hobby!!
I had such a great time. I would love to pursue making the rings again and practicing making more!
