Jewelry Workshop: Stacking Ring – Part of Art Escape

Cost: $125.00

Join me for a wonderful creative morning to learn basic metal-smithing techniques while you hand forge a set of 5 stacking rings that are uniquely yours. This class is perfect for beginners and a fun activity for groups of friends or family. Sign up today and start creating your own custom stackable rings!

See the tabs below to learn more about this workshop.

No experience necessary – all levels of jewelry makers welcome. All tools and materials included in cost of workshop for creating 5 stackable rings (2 sterling silver, 2 copper, 1 brass).

Lissa Flemming, owner of Silverwaves Jewelry and Workshop 46.8°N, is an art jewelry maker, torch slinger and anvil striker. She LOVES to share her jewelry knowledge and inspire creativity in a safe and inspiring atmosphere.

Even if you think you don’t have a creative bone in your body, Lissa will teach, challenge and empower you to find that creativity and make something glorious using the skills she shares during the workshop.

Lissa started her teaching career tutoring Biology during college and later continued coaching kayaking classes and later educating about the natural history of whales and ocean biology during mulit-day kayaking and whale watching adventure trips in Baja’s Gulf of California.

Now she splits time between creating jewelry for her gallery (Silverwaves Jewelry) and teaching at her dedicated jewelry studio (Workshop 46.8°N). She’d love you to join her as she assists you in opening your eyes, hands, and souls to the wonders of jewelry and metal.

Instructor - Lissa Flemming in the workshop

– Proper jeweler’s torch use and safety to solder rings

– Metal texturing using hammers, stamps, ring mandrel and dies

– Jewelry design to create your own unique stacking ring patterns, shapes and textures.

– Enthusiasm and patience (remember you will be learning a billion new and fun skills for the first time—enjoy the moment and BREATH)

– 100% cotton apron (I will also have some to borrow)

– Close-toed studio shoes to wear during workshop. Studio space is very slippery with wet shoes so we recommend leaving those at the door.

– Reading glasses or magnifiers

– Headband, clip or holder to keep your hair back when soldering

– Your own hand tools, drilling station, soldering station, etc if you wish (a lot of people prefer to use their own; I know I do!)

– Notebook and pen/pencil to jot down important ideas, thoughts, etc.

There will be a tea kettle and complimentary assorted RISHI teas available throughout the workshop as well as sparkling botanicals available for purchase.
