WORKSHOPS - FAQ's
1. I’d love to book/host a workshop. How does it work?
If you're keen to attend one of our stand alone London workshops, head on over to our Workshops Home page to see where we're hosting a session. If we're in an area near you, click on the 'Book Now' button to take you through to our booking partner Obby where you can select a date that works best for your diary. New dates and venues are added all the time so keep checking back! If you'd prefer to host a workshop for you and some friends, check out our Bespoke Workshops page for more information and again click on 'Book Now' for options. We’ll be in touch to make sure our diaries match!
2. Where do the workshops take place?
That’s entirely up to you! Whether you’re a couple of housemates who fancy doing something different in your evenings or you’re hosting a weekend hen party for a group of friends, we run regular London Workshops both north and south of the river so there's normally a venue within spitting distance. Alternatively if you'd prefer something a little more private, we can take the hassle out of organising a venue by coming to you. We provide all the tools and materials needed - you provide the space! Check out our Bespoke Workshop page for more info. (Minimum of two people.)
3. Do I need to bring anything?
We request that anyone with long hair brings something to tie it back with. In addition, if you wear glasses or contact lenses for close up work, we’d highly recommend you wear them too. Jewellery (in case you hadn’t guessed already) can be quite fiddly! Other than that, a willingness to try something new is all you need!
4. I’m hosting. What do I need to provide?
A sturdy table and enough seats for the number of people in your booking as well as access to hot and cold water are all you need to provide. We’ll bring everything else.
5. Are there any other health and safety aspects I should be aware of?
We begin all of our workshops with a quick health and safety briefing outlining the potential risks involved in silversmithing and what to do in highly unlikely event of an accident. If you've organised a Bespoke Workshop, you as the host will be considered responsible for all the guests within your party and may be required to sign a liability waiver prior to the workshop commencing. Participants will be working with sharp tools and high temperatures so we ask that no one be under the influence of alcohol or drugs for the duration of the workshop. (We reserve the right to cancel the workshop and/or reject any member of the party who we believe to be under the influence at any point during the workshop.)
Naturally if your workshop is part of a celebration, then by all means have the champagne on ice... We’ll even help you pour it once the workshop is finished!
6. Is there a minimum age limit?
For insurance purposes, all participants must be sixteen years or over.
7. Can I use a Roderick Vere gift voucher to pay for my workshop?
You certainly can. Just enter your gift voucher code(s) at checkout and the amount will be taken off your total.
8. What is the refund policy?
Tickets are strictly non-refundable, however we appreciate that circumstances can and may change. If you need to change the date of your booking, get in touch and we will do all we can to help reorganise. By purchasing a ticket(s) you agree to the above terms and conditions. This does not affect your statutory rights.
