Silver Ring in a Day Workshop



Learn how to make your own simple textured silver band ring in this 1 day workshop, with master jeweller and Montsalvat artist in resident Jeanette Dyke

Join our jewellery making classes in the beautiful surrounds of the artist’s colony of Montsalvat in Melbourne
Classes are relaxed and friendly, ideal for complete beginners with no experience necessary, all skills needed will be taught during the class
This is a unique event as I don't usually run 1 day group classes, they are usually spread over 4 weeks
This event has been specially organised as part of Craft Cubed Festival of events in order to encourage the community to experience making by hand
I aim to inspire and bring out the artist in people within a unique, creative environment
I will have samples of silver rings to show and inspire you, so you don't even need to have a design in mind before you come
Everything is supplied including; silver, tools, blades, emery paper, tea and coffee and super views
Our venue for the day will be Jeanette's beautiful medieval style studio, with vaulted timber ceiling, leadlight windows, stone spiral staircase and even a minstrel’s gallery!
