Recently Leanne Evans and I held another 'Make a Ring Workshop' in Aberdeen this time as part of HacknMake.
To warm us up Leanne taught her boyfriend how to make a ring!
Each class you can learn how to saw, solder,
design and make a silver and brass ring.
Mass pile of tools for each workshop!
Here's a look at some of the rings made on the day!

On Sunday the 8th of April myself and Leanne Evans of Leanne T Evans Jewellery, packed our jewellery suitcases and headed off to Edinburgh for the Mini Makers Faire in Summerhall, Edinburgh.
My cool wee badge for the day!!
This was our room for the day it was in an old veterinary school,
we were in the old dissection rooms!
The aim for the day was for Leanne and I to teach everyone
how to make a silver ring with brass detail.
First time teaching nerves began to kick in!!!
But as the day went on I realised I LOVE teaching!!
Who would have thought?!
Getting to work!
My brand new bench peg certainly got put to good use!!!
