Wat je gaat doen

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

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

Your next step will be to learn how to file and shape your ring; this is where you will start to create your own unique design by choosing the shape and feel of your silver ring.

I will then 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.

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 and for the past two years I have been living in Bruges.
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!

Waar je naartoe gaat

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!

Heel leuke workshop, veel uitleg, zeer professioneel maar wel toegankelijk. Je vertrekt met een uniek sierraad. Zeker de moeite waard!

This was an AMAZING experience! Richard was very knowledgable and just generally a great teacher and person. Both my husband and I had a great time! I would completely recommend for anyone looking for a unique experience while learning something along the way! Richard also was very compliant with COVID measures but we still got but he still provided wrapped cookies and sealed drinks!! This was a great experience!

This was a great experience for me, my wife, and my daughter. The workshop is perfectly paced - there's no need to hurry, and there's enough time to get to know each other a bit and learn a lot about silversmithing.
