Au programme

You will join me in my workshop in the heart of Old Bruges and learn to handmake your own sterling silver ring.

During our time you will have hands on experience of forging, shaping and finishing your own silver ring.

First you will choose which finger you would like the ring for, measure your silver and cut to size using a handsaw.

Next you will choose from a wide selection of hand stamps to add a custom message onto the inside of the ring. This could be a name, date or your favourite beer!

You will learn how to hammer the silver into a ring shape using mallets and a triblet.

I will then heat and solder your ring while explaining the process of heating and joining silver together.

Next I will show you how to add textures and markings to your ring. This is your unique ring and your time to really show your creative side!

The last step will be to choose the finish and polish; this could be highly polished to add some sparkle, a satin finish or even a rough forged look to your ring.

Finally you will have your own silver ring to keep, handmade by you in the Heart of Old Bruges, a fabulous and unique way to remember your trip to our magical city.
Other things to note
No previous experience of jewellery tools or working with silver is needed to enjoy the workshop and make a ring.

We will use 925 sterling silver for your ring.

We have a safe place to store luggage

I studied Jewellery and Silversmithing at the School of Jewellery in Birmingham, one of the oldest Jewellery schools in Europe.
I have over 20 years of experience working as a silversmith. I have been living in Bruges since 2017.
Recently I was asked to return to the School of Jewellery to work as an Artist in Residence; the scheme welcomes silversmiths into the school to help current students work towards their BA and HND qualifications, during this time, I discovered a real passion for teaching. I look forward to welcoming you to my workshop and sharing my experience of Bruges!

Le lieu

My workshop The Silver Hand is based within the heart of old Brugge, 5-10 minutes walk from the famous Markt Square and Belfry. Our retail store and workshop are set within a converted 18th century aristocratic home, which has many period features and alot of character! Your time will be spent inside the workshop area with access to our outdoor terrace (depending on the weather!) to enjoy a tea/coffee break!

What a great experience : there is a kind of magic when you create your own ring from A to Z: from the length of your silver to the polish of your ring, you are making it with your mind, your soul and your hands. It is becoming a very personal object, the kind of you one you cherished… During all the steps, Richard is there to explain the why and how… and the result is your ring done as you want done during an amazing moment!

Richard was very hospitable and kind. He has a beautiful shop and his work shows a range of different styles, all equally magnificent. We had a lot of fun making the rings and thanks to Richard’s guidance, they turned out just splendid.

I highly recommend doing this workshop! Richard was a wonderful host & teacher who explained everything clearly, had a great sense of humour and also offered us snacks and drinks. He is very knowledgeable and made the whole unique experience very comfortable and so much fun! Going home with a unique souvenir is a plus. Don't forget to ask him about thumb rings and glitter flaps 😉

Super!!!!! Richard est adorable et le lieu captivant. Très pédagogue et à l’écoute, on apprend des choses tout en s’amusant et en repartant avec sa propre bague. À refaire 😇

Richard really makes this an excellent experience. It is great fun and leaves you with a new ring and a real insight into the craftmanship of gold/silver smithing. He serves a decent cup of tea as well 🙂

Richard a été très avenant avec nous. On a réalisé nos bagues de fiançailles chez lui. C'était très bien comme expérience, rempli en émotions.
