Silver Spinner Ring Making Workshop

Learn how to make an elegant spinner ring or meditation ring in this full day workshop



7 hours Class size 3 to 5     label $190

Join this fun hands-on jewellery making workshop in the Blue Mountains and walk away with a beautiful spinner ring that you have created with your own two hands!

You'll be using sterling silver, as well as brass and copper wire if you prefer a mixed metal look.

You will be guided through the process of creating your own silver ring from scratch with the guidance of an expert. You will be able to personalise your ring design with textures, patterns and letters too!

In this hands-on experience, you'll learn the basics of jewellery making including annealing, sawing, filing, soldering, shaping and forming, texturing, combining your rings and polishing.

This workshop is great for those who have a little bit of experience in jewellery and preferably have taken one of Fran’s other jewellery workshops.

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

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

Please note: The workshop will only go ahead if there are two or more participants - anyone booked will be moved to a new date that suits them.

Fran is an artist; an educator, neither overshadows, they simply entwine and enrich one another.

At a young age Fran discovered the value of creating art in her daily life. The act of art helped Fran express her identity. The process of developing an idea, especially with jewellery, seeing that idea come to completion by Fran's own hand filled her with satisfaction and accomplishment.  Fran began to see how creating art helped other aspects of my life and learning.

Fran is inspired by nature, patterns, form and texture. Each created piece portrays a slice of life, a perspective of the world in which we all live. Her mediums span painting and jewellery to collage and stitching. They all bring joy, though not everything turns out how she envisaged.

In particular Fran sees the unique design and individually handcrafted nature of bespoke jewellery as an ornamental way of extending personal self-expression. During the creative process, she is mindful that someone will be wearing the piece and it will come alive only when it finds its owner.

Fran is most comfortable in the studio classroom teaching art than in any other place or endeavour. It fills her soul to help others learn by exposing them to tools, materials and techniques of Fran's trade and then develop their skills and confidence in the creative medium.

Through support, conversation and laughter, I set a welcoming scene of free expression.

Ladybird Design Creative Studio is the culmination of creating a life around my passions of art, jewellery and teaching. It frees Fran to take a piece of silver, blank canvas or paper, turn it into a beautiful thing and share it with the world every day. Fran believes now more than ever that pursuing one’s passions makes life more colourful and vibrant, gives us pleasure and purpose, but most of all it reminds us of who we are.

Fran would love to share the joy of creating and making with you.

I thoroughly recommend Fran’s classes. My daughter and I did her spinner ring class and Fran was flexible on date and time and her experience and guidance was fantastic. A fantastic day with a beautiful ring and great value for money!
PS the morning tea was amazing too

What a fabulous way to spend the day with friends. We all thoroughly enjoyed crafting our spinner rings with Fran who patiently guided us through the process. Lovely location in the Blue Mountains with Fran being the perfect host. This is definitely something we will do again.

Spent a very enjoyable Sunday making a " Spinner " ring with Fran at Ladybird Design Workshop.
As always the instruction was patient and thorough. We were given time to acquire the skills necessary. No short cuts so that we build confidence and skill.
I am pleasantly surprised by my creation in a 6 hr class. Thoroughly recommend. The ring: https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=10160174481490844&set=a.10150241739145844
