Bought a Stamping Ring session for a friend as a gift. The class was fun...Sam was a great, motivating instructor and we loved the rings we made.
I purchased a Rings & Bangles workshop as a Christmas/Anniversary gift for my better half and can say without a doubt this was hands down the best experience we've ever had. The staff were incredibly friendly and patient, more than happy to help create whatever your heart could desire (within reason). The atmosphere was wonderful - warm, inviting, and incredibly hospitable. As first time customers, it certainly won't be our last experience here! For those taking classes parking can be a bit tricky but streets like Uxbridge street and the surrounding streets offer free parking, and the grape shop/grocery just down the street makes one of the meanest sandwiches in the back (staff recommendation).
I had such a blast, thank you so much for exisiting! Best day ever. <3
Fantastic experience. It's a Fantastic space and great facilities. All of the staff are very knowledgeable experienced and patient....and to be honest it's pretty mind blowing what you end up creating from a flat piece of silver. Looking forward to going back and learning new skills!!
Every year at Christmas, we struggled as to what to do for our employees. Christmas presents, a party, bonuses, etc? The Den allowed us to put our Holiday Spirit into a team building exercise. We purchased $50 dollars of silver for each employee and they got to make it into anything they wanted. Some made gifts for their wives, sisters, significant other, etc. I can't remember my employees enjoying themselves more. They made rings, Star Trek cufflinks, matching pendants, etc. Our employees absolutely loved it, and it was an experience they will always remember! AND, our employees gave a gift to someone special - a gift they put sweat equity into, which was a personal touch for their loved ones. Memories which will last a lifetime! Couldn't have asked for a better corporate team building event!
This workshop far exceeded my expectations. It's a hands-on unique experience worth every penny! Awesome people, relaxed atmosphere, fun time. Absolutely recommend it!
We had such an amazing experience making our wedding bands at The Den. I can't recommend it enough. From the consultation through to the execution, every part of our journey at The Den was stress-free and fun. We feel really good about using reclaimed gold that would have otherwise gone into the landfill. Sam made the actual day of the workshop super-special. Not only is she amazingly knowledgeable about ring making, but she is super-chill and kept us laughing and relaxed while taking photos that we will cherish forever. We can't thank her enough for making the day so great!!! We will definitely be back to make more jewelry for one another.
What a fun ladies night out activity! Can't wait for my next class!!!
It was a great experience.. definitely recommend it!!
participated in a workshop yesterday at the den and was blown away by how friendly and fun the atmosphere was! not to mention the fact that kristin and sam stayed with us until after midnight to make sure we were happy with our finished pieces - goes to show how dedicated they are to their craft as well as helping others achieve their visions! absolutely outstanding workshop 10/10 would recommend and would participate again
The staff here are professional, friendly and fun. They will teach you real skills, you can use again, as you make a beautiful piece of jewelry for yourself.
Was so much fun! Great staff; they really made you feel comfortable in learning the techniques and figuring everything out. Was an awesome night out!
Very cool experience. You'll have a new appreciation for handmade jewellery!
Absolutely amazing experience. Kristin you are the BEST!
Absolutely best way to spend an evening so much to learn and some lovely projects to take home with you. Kristin might be my new all time favourite person! She's absolutely amazing
My brother and I bought this class through Groupon as a gift for my mom for Christmas. It was super easy to book and a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Our rings turned out even better than we had expected. All of the girls were really knowledgeable and helpful. We had a great time and will definitely be back again!
The workshop at The Den far exceeded our expectation & we had a fantastic time throughout the whole process. Kristin was really knowledgeable and took her time to make sure that everyone was comfortable with the tools and answer any questions that came up. During our session we learned how to anneal, weld, file, properly size and polish our bands. I highly recommend doing this if you are looking for a one of a kind experience. No matter your skill level you can do this!!!!
Awesome experience! We had a great time making rings. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the final product looks amazing. The dog and parrot are super cute mascots too.
Blown glass creations, sweets, massage, made a ring and drank my face off with my friends while a parrot sat on my shoulder... what more could you want?
Absolutely amazing. This experience allowed us to make our most precious piece of jewelry - our wedding bands! The sentimental value has now topped the charts knowing that they are one of a kind and were made by our own hands. Thank you Kristen!!!
Had a great time at the Den in Montreal on Valentine's day! Thanks Kristin!
Set in a high-ceiling, converted mechanic garage, entering the Den feels like a spacious yet cozy workshop. Kristin and her crew, Daria and Brent, walked us through each step - bending, soldering, adding our personal touches and then finishing touches. I appreciated the coffee, juice and snacks while the rings were pickling (stage after solder). It was a little difficult to book with my Groupon and my restricted availability but the Den accommodated my partner and myself quickly. Average on the price aspect as far as Make-Your-Own workshops go; the quality of the finished product is superb. Tip: watch for holiday season discounts and you can book a private workshop for a date of your choosing with a minimum four people. I learned a lot, had fun, and the Den is very welcoming. Overall, a great experience and a quality, handcrafted ring to cherish.
Boyfriend brought me here for my birthday and it is definitely a bit $$$ but if you're very hands on and handmade is your thing, this is worth it. They've... more
