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!

Es war unglaublich toll! Richard gab uns von Anfang an das Gefühl willkommen zu sein. Wir fühlten uns sehr sicher und gut beraten in jeder Frage. Er hat immer dafür gesorgt,das wir alles verstehen und das keine Frage offen bleibt. Er hat es wirklich gut gemacht,sodass es uns sehr einfach vorkam. Und das Ergebnis ist wirklich sehenswert! Abgesehen davon,dass wir mit dem Resultat sehr glücklich sind,war es auch ein schönes Erlebnis mit Richard. Es war sehr angenehm mit ihm über alles mögliche zu reden und es war auch lustig mit ihm. Alles in allem hat mir bei dieser Entdeckung absolut nichts gefehlt. Wir sind total begeistert!

If I could give this experience 10 stars, I would. Our group had men and women and also teens, and we all loved this equally. Not only was it a fantastic group bonding experience for our family, we walked away with a super special memento from our trip to Bruges. Richard is personable, funny and knowledgeable and he is patient with you as you learn the things you need to make your special ring. This was a fantastic experience and we would do it again in a heartbeat.

Richard welcomed us as soon as we arrived. He very quickly conveys a relaxed atmosphere and has excellent expert knowledge in his field. During the workshop he will explain what you need to do and help here and there if help is needed. We never felt uncomfortable at any time and we could talk to him about everything on the side. He is a nice personality, who is very good with people and offers a nice workshop :) I can recommend everyone to do a workshop if you are in Bruges and you are interested in a selfmade souvenir. It is worth the money. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
