Hannah will guide you through the process of making your own wedding rings from scratch. Each one-day workshop is per couple (you will have the workshop to yourselves and will not have to share with anyone else). Hannah will be there to explain the process and to provide as much help as you need, but we encourage you to take control and do all the making yourselves! The day is fun, relaxed and informal and you will leave with rings you are both delighted with.
You will experience annealing, shaping, soldering, filing, forming and finishing, and at the end of the day each of you will have finished hand-making a wedding ring from precious metal, and you'll be able to take them away with you on the day.
You can choose to make your rings from sterling silver, 9ct yellow gold, 9ct rose gold, 9ct white gold, 18ct yellow gold, 18ct rose gold, or 18ct white gold.
Your workshop will run from 10am until 4pm, but may finish earlier or later depending on how you get on. Bookings are available seven days a week (please book early to avoid disappointment). We will provide morning coffee on arrival, a light homemade lunch, and a champagne afternoon tea once you have finished.
Price per day per couple is £300, plus the metal of your choice. We are happy to provide quotes for your silver/gold in advance of booking, but please be aware that metal prices quoted are valid for one month from the date of the quote. This is due to fluctuations in the gold index price.
Hallmarking is available on request. Please note that hallmarking means that you will not be able to take your rings away with you on the day, and you will need to allow a maximum of two weeks for your rings to be hallmarked. The cost for hallmarking is £20 per ring. Rhodium plating is also available for white gold rings at the cost of £30 per ring; please ask us if you would like to know more about this.
We are fully insured and provide all safety and protective equipment.

“I’m writing to thank you for the time we had on Saturday! You are awesome, and me and Ben loved the day we had. You really exceeded our expectations! The way you handled the workshop, giving us all the advice and letting us have the control and decisions about our rings was perfect! We could never imagine that from that two strips of metal we would have our perfect (with our little own imperfections) and unique rings! I would recommend you to anyone! When we will look to our rings, we won’t just be able to remember our wedding, but the lovely time we had making them for each other. It was an absolutely fantastic experience and we can’t thank you enough for all your patience and care!”
