Wedding ring workshop - RESERVED for Ben Smith
Time and location
About the event
Turn a simple block of platinum into your own handcrafted wedding ring under the expert guidance of Michel Vermande, a master jeweller with more than 40 years experience. You will be professionally guided through every step of the process, receiving personalised attention in this hands on, detailed craft. At the end of the day, you will leave the studio with a perfectly fitted, high quality platinum wedding ring.
The workshop is held in our modern studio in the heart of Bowral. No prior experience is required. We’ll break the process down into small steps that will be easy to follow and we’ll be there to help you at every stage. You'll create a practice ring in sterling silver to begin with, just to familiarise yourself with the process, and then you'll move onto making your final design in platinum.

- Whole day workshop from 9am – 4pm
- Studio access plus all tools and equipment
- Tea, coffee and light refreshments throughout the day
- Personalised instruction from a master jeweller
