What you'll do

Learn how to make a sterling silver ring from scratch, with our AWARD WINNING EXPERIENCE!

Start off by marking your silver to the length you require by choosing which finger you would like it on. Then, you'll use a handsaw to cut it to size, you'll learn how to form the ring, using a mallet to shape it to the ring mandrel. You'll watch as it is soldered in front of you by an expert tutor—all the time, she will explain exactly what she is doing. Then you'll learn to file it by using different hand files—this is fun, as it is when you get to individualize your ring, deciding what curve you would like it to have. This can make a great difference to the end result. Next, you'll choose from three very different textures. You get to use your creativity with the planishing hammer to achieve the texture you require. People love this part as it's when you make your ring truly individual. Finally you get to choose your polish. Some people like it polished only on the inside, to give it an artistic/rustic look. Others like the glittery sparkle of a fully polished ring. It's your decision. Then the best bit—you get to keep your ring! It's the ultimate souvenir for remembering your trip to Ireland. Enjoy!

Excellent experience. It was so cool to learn how rings are made and then to be able to take one away at the end of the class. Had a lot of fun and made a great memory

Isis was the instructor for our silver forging class and she was outstanding. She gave us a thorough overview of the process. It was an insightful couple of hours and helped us understand the true value of handmade jewelry. We had fun and we left with rings that we love. It was an incredible experience and I recommend it. Whether you are a first-timer, have made your own jewelry in the past, or want a unique Dublin experience. It's great to also have a piece of the experience to take home.

Amazing experience that everyone should try at least once while in Dublin! Sinéad was a wonderful teacher and host. I immediately felt welcomed upon meeting her. Her instructions were clear, concise, and easy to follow. The amount of time that goes into making a "simple band" allows you to appreciate the work behind each piece. Definitely a must!

This was an amazing experience. We went with my two daughters (9 years and 12 years) and we all had an amazing time. I did not think that we would get to do as much as we did. The instructions were perfect and my girls were able to do it independently. They wear their rings all the time and they are so proud of what they made.
