The Little Silver Kiln - Ring Making

Hartlepool Borough Hall- Make your own silver ring and copper practice ring.

In this 2 hour class, we will cover the basics of ring making. Teaching you how to measure, cut, texture, solder and polish your ring.

This workshop has limited spaces meaning each person will have 1:1 time with the tutor and particular attention can be taken when using the blowtorch- this is great for those of you who might find heat work a little scary.

As part of  Wintertide Festival, we wanted to make this session available to as many people as possible in the time available. We will have two tutors between 10 participants but some tools may be shared in rotation.
