We’re sorry, this experience is not able to go ahead right now.
Due to the current Covid restrictions, this experience is unable to take place during December 2020.
Every booking - regardless of when this takes place, will play a part in helping our local businesses to survive this challenging time and help them bounce back when we are able to visit them in person again.
Book something to look forward to or gift to someone special for when lockdown is over, or to celebrate a brand new year!
Make your own ring as a unique gift or a custom piece of jewellery to keep in this private experience with The Silver Duck. With the help of Charlotte, The Silver Duck’s owner and an independent local creator, you’ll use the tools and techniques to make and finish your own piece.
For this experience you can choose to make three delicate stacking rings or one larger statement ring. Charlotte can help you with design inspiration but she finds it always helps when a guest comes along with a design or style in mind.
Once you’ve developed your design with Charlotte you’ll choose, cut, shape and hammer your silver. If you’d like any texturing on your finished piece you can practice texturing techniques in copper first. This is a chance to make your own memorable piece of jewellery as a gift or something special to keep, with an experienced Bristol maker.
This is a private experience and you'll have your own fully sanitised workspace. You can bring along a mask to wear if you'd like to.
Please wear long trousers and closed shoes. If you have long hair you’ll also need to tie it back. Tea and coffee will be provided but bring along a packed lunch with you. There is bike storage available, just let Charlotte know if you’d like to use it.
For Charlotte, it all started when she was given a wire jewellery making kit as a gift. She was already interested in art and design but after creating those jewellery pieces she decided to study for her degree in silversmithing, metalwork and jewellery. Charlotte now makes her work out of her Old Market Manor studio, a space she shares with other creatives from jewellery makers to woodworkers. She's passionate about sharing her craft and giving people a glimpse of the techniques and the time it takes to work with silver. Charlotte’s aim with all her experiences is to allow people to be creative, have fun and go away with a piece they’ll be proud of.View more experiences by The Silver Duck
