Forge Together workshop, where you and your partner can create each other's wedding or handfasting bands from scratch, with the guidance of a skilled Goldsmith - Helene Campbell.
This workshop offers a unique and intimate experience for couples who want to create a truly special and meaningful wedding band for each other. Our experienced Goldsmith - Helene will be on hand to guide you through every step of the process, from selecting the type of metal to use, to shaping and polishing your finished bands.
Working together with your partner, you will have the opportunity to create each other a wedding band that truly reflects your unique love and commitment for each other. Both of you will start with a initial consultation, either face to face or via zoom, to select the type of metal, such as gold or silver, and then move on to designing your bands to your liking. From here the method of forging your bands will be decided.
Once the style of band is decided we will move onto the workshop where you will be provided with all the tools and materials needed to create each other's wedding bands, including wax or metal, hammers, files, and even polishing tools. You will both be provided with guidance and support throughout the entire process, ensuring that your finished bands are of the highest quality and craftsmanship.
Creating each other's wedding bands is a truly unforgettable experience, and one that you will cherish for a lifetime. Not only will you have a beautiful and unique piece of jewellery to wear on your wedding day, but you will also have the satisfaction of knowing that you created each other's band together, further forging your relationship.
At our workshop, we believe that every couple deserves a ring band that is as unique and special as their love. Contact us today to schedule an initial consultation and follow up workshop session and begin the process of creating your perfect wedding bands together.
