Apa yang akan anda lakukan

You will join me in my workshop in the heart of Old Bruges and learn to handmake your own sterling silver ring.

During our time you will have hands on experience of forging, shaping and finishing your own silver ring.

First you will choose which finger you would like the ring for, measure your silver and cut to size using a handsaw.

Next you will choose from a wide selection of hand stamps to add a custom message onto the inside of the ring. This could be a name, date or your favourite beer!

You will learn how to hammer the silver into a ring shape using mallets and a triblet.

I will then heat and solder your ring while explaining the process of heating and joining silver together.

Next I will show you how to add textures and markings to your ring. This is your unique ring and your time to really show your creative side!

The last step will be to choose the finish and polish; this could be highly polished to add some sparkle, a satin finish or even a rough forged look to your ring.

Finally you will have your own silver ring to keep, handmade by you in the Heart of Old Bruges, a fabulous and unique way to remember your trip to our magical city.
Other things to note
No previous experience of jewellery tools or working with silver is needed to enjoy the workshop and make a ring.

We will use 925 sterling silver for your ring.

We have a safe place to store luggage

I studied Jewellery and Silversmithing at the School of Jewellery in Birmingham, one of the oldest Jewellery schools in Europe.
I have over 20 years of experience working as a silversmith. I have been living in Bruges since 2017.
Recently I was asked to return to the School of Jewellery to work as an Artist in Residence; the scheme welcomes silversmiths into the school to help current students work towards their BA and HND qualifications, during this time, I discovered a real passion for teaching. I look forward to welcoming you to my workshop and sharing my experience of Bruges!

My workshop The Silver Hand is based within the heart of old Brugge, 5-10 minutes walk from the famous Markt Square and Belfry. Our retail store and workshop are set within a converted 18th century aristocratic home, which has many period features and alot of character! Your time will be spent inside the workshop area with access to our outdoor terrace (depending on the weather!) to enjoy a tea/coffee break!

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit bei Richard in der Werkstatt. Er hat uns super abgeleitet und wir haben uns sehr über unsere ersten selbst gemachten Silberringe gefreut. Als nächstes bekommt unsere Tochter einen Gutschein um das Event mit Ihren Freundinnen zu machen :) sind schon ganz gespannt !

Richard is an excellent host and creates a warm and creative atmosphere in his magical studio. The time allotted is sufficient and you will get out as a proud owner of a ring designed and manufactured by yourself. There is something very satisfying in creating a new, beautiful thing with your hands. This is a safe environment and I presume children over 14 would be safe and would have fun here (I don’t know whether Richard allows this; I would). He takes over in two potentially dangerous situations (working with fire, and polishing at high speed). I also felt safe re Covid. All participants have to be vaccinated and show their proofs, everyone wears mask all the time, and the space is more than sufficiently large. Very, very good experience.

A magical shop with a cozy interior and beautiful products. Richard is a really nice and fun guy who goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable. He gives simple, understandable instructions and takes time for all questions and provides assistance. A very successful workshop!

It was absolutely amazing! Richard is a really interesting person. It was nice for us to get to know him a little during the workshop. The experience of forging our own rings was unique and we will keep this memory with us forever. Definetely recommended!

Just book it! This was a major highlight of my trip in Belgium. Richard is so knowledgable and passionate about what he does that you can't help but have a positive experience. I loved the process of making something that I'll get to keep with me for many years to come (and pass down to others!). Richard made this experience one of a kind, and I can't recommend it highly enough!
