This course is aimed at couples to come to our studio to design and make their own wedding rings over two days in their chosen precious metal.We limit the numbers to one couple per weekend, and generally make a bit of a fuss of them while they are here! (ie; take photos of their progress and
celebrate the completion of their rings over a glass of champagne!)
We begin the weekend by constructing their chosen designs in silver. This gives participants a
chance to get used to the various techniques and machinery before making the actual wedding bands.
At this stage we also experiment with various finishes for those looking for something a bit different.
Our aim over the two days is for each couple to be involved in every process of their rings construction, either their own ring or each others. Prior experience in jewellery making is not necessary and we encourage complete beginners to participate in the course. Each couple experiences a huge sense of achievement by the end of the weekend, and are happy to be going home with something unique which they have made from start to finish.
The price of the course is €500 per couple, plus the cost of the materials, so that depend on the couples choice of silver or gold, and what carat.
Adela & Mark:
Adela and Mark, a Spanish/Irish duo came to make their one off, rose and white gold rings in March 2012, a lot of work, but all worthwhile in the end.............
Sinead & Donal
At the end of May 2011 Sinead and Donal came to the workshop to make their own wedding rings- we think they turned out brilliantly..........
There was a little bit of gold left over from Sinead's ring so she made a pair of earrings to wear on the big day too!
Amanda & Joe
At the beginning of February 2011, Amanda and Joe came to us for the weekend and made their wedding rings, for their wedding this April!
Here is how the weekend went in pictures..................
