Run me through the day
You will arrive at my workshop at 10.30am. We will have a brief discussion again about the rings you are looking to make. We will previously of had a meeting about the style of rings you would like to make and what materials we are going to use so I will have these ready for you. I will then do a brief demonstration on how to make your rings and then we will get to work making your own wedding rings. You can enjoy prosecco, tea, coffee and juice whilst making with nibbles to keep you going. half way through the day I will provide you with lunch just let me know of any dietary requirements. I will take photographs throughout the workshop for you to keep and look back on. You can make your own ring or make each others. We will make the rings to a very high standard finish and if you would like hallmarking, engraving, plating or stone setting done this will be done after the workshop and can take a few weeks. Dogs are welcome if you would like to bring your furry friend along. The studio is yours for the day so it can take as long as you like. Most workshops last around 4-5hours.
Can they take away the finished product in the day or do they need to come to you a couple of times to get the rings finished?
Yes you can take their rings away on the day. If you would like your rings hallmarked, engraved, rhodium plated or stone set the rings will be left with me to finish.
Do you provide ring boxes to keep the rings safe till the day?
You will be given a double ring box to take your rings away in.
