What you'll do
You will learn how to make a beautiful sterling silver ring from scratch! This workshop is accessible to everyone, no skill required, and that's the beauty of it! After welcoming you in my bright and cozy studio in Griffintown near the Atwater Market and the Lachine Canal, I will provide you with all the materiel, so all you need is your hands and a smile! :) Every step of the project will be demonstrated step by step as we go along. Learn all about the tools, techniques and safety measures, as you create your own personalized ring. About the process: First we will learn how to size your ring (if you are making it for someone else, please bring a ring with you that fits his/her finger). Then we will learn how to shape, solder and form the round shape using a torch and mallets. For the final touch, you will choose your texture and the finishing look of your ring. You can let your imagination go wild! I will provide you with special hammers and pattern punches to add personality to your ring. At the end of the class, you will walk out with a beautiful and unique ring that you have created yourself! It will be your little souvenir from Montreal!
Hi, I'm Steph, founder and teacher at Studio Cotillon in Montreal. From painting to sculpting, sewing and ceramics, I acquired a ton of art skills at a young age in my mom's studio, and studied Industrial Design and art teaching in university, then metalsmithing and enameling at The Visual Arts Centre and at the School of Metalsmithing of Montreal. I fell in love with metalsmithing as soon as I took my first class! My favourite pieces of jewelry to make are rings; the process of sizing, cutting, soldering and polishing has become my meditation. I have been selling my jewelry since 2014! About a year ago, I started giving classes and I really enjoy seeing my proud students' faces when they wear the jewelry they have created! It reminds me of my first time and how I felt amazed by the endless possibilities!
