Wedding Ring Making Workshops
Workshops are now being held with social distancing measures in place for those living in regional Victoria. Due to the change in restrictions, from 11:59 on Sunday 8 November, students from Metropolitan Melbourne will be able to attend workshops. Until further notice, there will be a maximum of three students in group workshops.
We are unable to eat lunch in one of the local cafes due to social distancing requirements, so if your workshop includes lunch, this will be ordered from a local cafe and delivered to the studio. A menu will be emailed to you in advance. Lunch is included in your course fee. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options are available.
We are following advice from the Australian Government in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Your safety and wellbeing are our highest priority.

Make your own wedding rings
Your wedding band is one of the most important pieces of jewellery you'll ever wear, and a ring handmade by you or your partner is even more special.
You don't need to be creative or good with your hands. Everyone who makes their wedding rings in our workshop takes home a beautiful handmade set of rings.
Workshops include all tools and equipment, morning/afternoon tea, sterling silver and full tuition. Gold and platinum to make your rings is an additional fee. Fill out the form below to help us provide you with an estimate.

There are three types of private wedding ring workshops. Each workshop is $1100 per couple:
Couples Formed and Forged Wedding Band in a Day Workshop
You work directly with the metal in this workshop, as this is a full day workshop, it includes lunch.
