"Really enjoyable morning. Katy explains things so well, we all had a good result to take home. Could have done a whole day as you learn so much with the first casting it would have been good to have had another go. Venue is lovely if a little bit out the way and the cake is just scrumptious. I look forward to a return visit to do some silversmithing. Thank you Katy." Grace

Join Us!

Craft your own wedding rings and create lasting memories in a unique and intimate workshop setting. I will confirm your workshop within 72 hours of booking and guide you in your choice of metal for your wedding rings. We can work in silver or 9/18ct gold. If you are choosing gold then there will be an additional charge which I will advise you about when confirming as gold prices fluctuate.

I would love to welcome you into my studio but as it is small I use a local venue for workshops which gives us more room.
