Dette kommer dere til å gjøre

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!

Her skal du være

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!

Very cool workshop area - roomy and artsy atmosphere. Learned tons about jewelry making, and was able to make my own beautiful ring.

Rick’s workshop is not far from Bruges’ center, and it’s worth the trip. He walked me through the process of making my own ring that matched the ideas I had in my head. I enjoyed the lessons in silversmithing and the varied conversations we had. I love the end product and I highly recommend the experience.

After years of not being able to do an experience because of pandemic, this workshop was definitely one for the books. Richard was the perfect host, he takes great pictures, offer you refills of coffee or tea, and even hands out snacks. I've always been curious of forging works and this workshop did not disappoint.

Where shall I begin to describe this amazing workshop!? Well to start off, we challenged ourselves not to use our phones and just rely on his accurate directions. That's when the magic already begun I believe, wondering the beautiful streets of bruges looking for the next clue. When we entered his characteristic medieval looking shop, we where recieved with a very warm welcome. Not once did any of us feel the pressure of time and that showed when we walked out of his shop nearly 2 hours later then expected! Making the rings from scratch is a great experience, especially when you're with people you care about. We all left feeling enriched and completely satisfied. To bad I only have 10 fingers... Without a doubt I'll go back and I will recommend this to all my friends and family! This is the best valued workshop I have ever encountered and SO unique! It's so much fun, even if you have two left hands or if you're not as creative, I'm sure you'll love it! Just give it a try... I, the White Rabbit, solemnly promise that you won't regret giving this a try! If there is only one thing I may complain about... It's Richard's terrible taste in music! No I'm kidding... that was an inside joke. Everything was just beyond my expectations! Richard, a big hug and lots of love and peace! ♥️✌🏼🐇 the White Rabbit
