In this hands-on workshop, "ringworks" you will learn techniques to make a ring designed and hand made by you!

Set in the Blue Mountains, Lady Bird Studio / Karinya which has expansive views over a valley of trees, the property backs onto the national park.

You will begin learning how to work with metal, first using copper to practice saw-piercing and texturing which will help develop your idea. Then move on to creating your own beautiful sterling silver ring.

With time to focus and hone your skills, this class, open to all levels, is the perfect starting point to get creative and make some fabulous wearable piece of your own design.

The workshop is for beginners or anyone with some experience. All materials will be provided at no extra cost.

Essential techniques covered:

  • Metal cutting – learn how to saw-pierce metal using professional jewellery saw frames
  • Texturing and stamping – whether it’s a hammered texture or stamping, there is a range of tools to experiment with
  • Anneal and Soldering – using special jewellery torches watch how to anneal metal and solder
  • Finishing – learn how to file and use emery paper to give your earrings a final finish.

BYO your lunch, take a break, enjoy the view from the studio and chatting with other class participants.

Fran knows how to run a workshop for complete beginners, years of teaching experience make her calm and encouraging. She has a way of drawing out people's own style without projecting her own, and seems to enjoy each student's efforts. I am happy with the scarf ring I made.

Fran made everything perfect, even for me who is creatively challenged! I have a great appreciation of jewellery making & when I have more time, I’ll definitely do another class

Fran was so lovely and easy going, we learnt so much about making silver rings in this workshop.
All of the materials provided were high quality and very well set up. It was an intimate setting for learning, which I enjoyed very much. Fran organised a morning tea and was very dedicated to making this class something special and unique to us.
I Would HIGHLY recommend this class and any class that Fran hosts for that matter.

My family of four, which included two mid-teens, did this workshop yesterday. Everyone totally enjoyed the experience.

Fran was warm and approachable, so easy to be with. Her studio was really comfortable and well laid out. She explained everything clearly, what the tools were for and how to use them. She was really engaging throughout the time we were there and supportive with any questions we had.

We did not lack any materials we needed. We even had a lovely lunch and afternoon tea together with her, and enjoyed the amazing views of the blue mountains!

We now all have beautiful and well fitting rings! Definitely happy to do another workshop with Fran.

In the beautiful Blue Mountains you’ll find a quaint studio and Fran. I’ve done similar workshops, but felt that I also gained knowledge from Fran instead of only walking out with the product

Fran was a wonderful teacher who tailored the class to the ability and capacity of her students. The location was lovely and the facilities and equipment were of good quality.

Fran was the most wonderful instructor I’ve ever had. The materials and tools she allowed us to use were such high quality. She was so patient, kind and informative. She provided tea, coffee, snacks, love, and most important animal pats. I’ve walked away with a love for jewellery making. We’ve all agreed to rebook next year to do ring making part 2.
