FULL DAY WORKSHOP 1 - Manchester - 14th May 2016 - Spinner Ring
Learn to create a Fine Silver Spinner Ring
Out of stock.
Why not join me for an intermediate workshop to create a "spinner" or "fidget" ring? These rings are steeped in history and as early as the 4th century, Tibetan Monks used spinning wheels to aid prayer using a metal cylinder spinning on an axle. Nowadays, spinner rings are popular in many cultures and are said to promote calm and ease anxiety. Whether they do or not I'm not sure, but I know when I wear mine, I'm often spinning and fiddling with the ring!
On this intermediate workshop, you'll learn how to make an anticlastic ring, texture, refine and add one inner spinning ring. The rings in the photo are both very chunky but you can choose to create a much slimmer version if you'd prefer. All tools and equipment to make your ring will be provided on the day.
The workshop starts at 09.30am and runs until approximately 5.30pm. Tea, coffee and water are included in the price and lunch can be bought at the venue for around £10 from a large selection of hot and cold food. All you need to bring is yourself (and glasses if you need them for close up work).
There's ample parking at the venue, which is approximately 5 minutes by car from The Trafford Centre.
Some experience of working with metal clay would be advantageous. If you have never used metal clay before, it's highly recommended that you attend the Ring Workshop beforehand. The next Ring Workshop is on 5th March at the same venue.
