NEW Wax Ring and Pendant Carving Workshop - Friday 7th June 2024

NEW Wax Ring and Pendant Carving Workshop - Friday 7th June 2024

Regular price £140.00

Learn traditional wax carving techniques and create your own beautiful and unique silver ring and pendant - or two rings if you prefer!

No previous experience of jewellery making is needed and you will be guided through everything you need to know step-by-step, from sizing rings and sawing and filing wax blocks to carving beautiful details and patterns. Will you choose simple flowing shapes or more intricate patterns? The choice is yours!

We will start with carving rings and then after a quick lunch you can choose to use the skills you have learnt to create a pendant or a second ring.

After the session your items will be sent for casting and transformed into solid sterling silver using the lost wax casting method. They will then be hand finished and available to be posted back to you or collected from the studio approximately 2 weeks after the workshop.

If you usually wear reading glasses please remember to bring them with you. It would also be useful to bring photos and sketches of any ideas that you have, although examples and photos will be available for inspiration.

14 to 16 year olds are welcome but will need to be accompanied by a paying adult.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are included in the workshop fee.
