I'm now teaching Friday daytime 5 week classes which are more structured than my Wednesday evening classes. This term a group of lovely students each made a silver spinner ring from scratch.
Starting with silver sheet and wire, they learnt how to saw, file, form, anneal, solder and polish to create their pieces. Each and every student had completed their ring by the end of the 5 weeks, and they all looked amazing. I can't wait for the next 5 week course when I will be showing my students how to make Russian wedding rings :)
