(Based in my studio in Frome, Somerset)
I am currently running a "make your own silver ring" workshop, which gives you a 4 hour one to one session to grasp the basics of annealing, forming, soldering, sawing, pickling, filing, sanding and polishing. It allows you to quickly get an idea of handling metal and gives you an introduction to the basic core skills, plus you get to take home your own lovingly crafted silver band!
The 4 hour workshop is booked on a mutually acceptable date by contacting me. All materials are provided.
This workshop also makes a wonderful gift for that person who has always wanted to have a go! Please get in touch with me regarding gift vouchers.
"I spent 2 days with Ellie in her beautifully equipped studio, she is a very good, patient teacher and a lovely, easy going person to be with. I learnt a lot in the time I was with her and left feeling my skills had been honed and my confidence restored. I would thoroughly recommend Ellie for any stage of expertise, whether beginner or more experienced..."
It makes it just that bit more special to make bands for each other! It is also a really fun and interesting tudio day - fully supervised of course.
The wedding ring workshop is 6 hours per session with a light lunch provided, the cost of the metal and any required hallmarking is not included. Contact me to discuss details and requirements - I am flexible with my time. My studio is in Frome, Somerset.
"As our big day was approaching, we decided we wanted something unique and special for our wedding bands. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect option than Eleanor Christine Jewellery. Where else can you make your own rings in such calm, relaxing studios? Ellie was patient and helpful throughout the day, guiding us where needed, and allowing us freedom to ensure we really did make them ourselves! The finished products were amazing, and we will cherish them forever as we didn't buy them, we made them for each other. You can't get much better than that. Thank you so much Ellie."
Please contact me with any teaching / workshop request - I am happy to be flexible with my studio time and will happily teach total beginners and those who want to progress to more advanced skills.
