WORKSHOPS & COURSES 2019

ONE DAY WEDDING / CIVIL PARTNERSHIP RING COURSE

The Polishing Room, Flaxdrayton Farm, South Petherton TA13 5LR

Design & make them together

You choose the date, 10am-5pm.

What better way to start life’s journey together than to design and make your own wedding or civil partnership rings from recycled silver, Fairtrade gold or a combination of both, including reworking your family heirloom pieces!

You do not need experience as you will both be guided every step of the way on this unique and creative one-day course. Run by myself, from my professional yet welcoming silver studio in the heart of rural Somerset.

The outcome will be two beautiful rings, full of love and meaning that you’ll both be proud to wear forever, plus great memories of a fantastic day.

“My husband Dom & I made our wedding rings with Julia’s informative & creative support… An encouraging teacher, guiding us gently in getting it right. What a magical, unique & truly personal experience it was to fashion our wedding rings for one another, such a beautiful & intimate process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Julia and her workshops to anyone.”

– L. PARSONS
