Make your own fun ring with moving parts. Great ring to wear if you like to figit.

Each student will have time to try stamping, roller printing, and hammered textures. The ring will be textured, then soldered and shaped, polished and at the very end we will add the spinners to the ring, so that they move freely. No experience necessary, all materials and tools supplied.
