Wax Ring Carving Workshop - morning of Saturday 9th November 2024

Regular price £55.00

Learn traditional wax carving techniques and create your own beautiful and unique silver ring!

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

After the session you can choose to take your wax ring with you or have it sent for casting into solid sterling silver using the lost wax casting method. There is an extra cost for this (approximately £20), plus an additional £15 if you wish me to hand finish your ring for you.

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.

Date and Venue

10am-1pm Saturday 9th July 2024 at Fairways House, Mount Pleasant Road, Southampton, Hampshire. Full directions will be emailed.

Materials

Cost of the wax is included in the workshop fee.

As detailed above if you wish me to send your ring for casting this will cost an additional £20 for rings weighing up to 1g of wax, paid for on the day. Casting takes up to two weeks.

Cast rings always require some cleaning up, and you can do this at home if you have the tools. If you would like me to finish your ring for you there is a cost of £15.

Gold plating can be arranged for your ring. This takes a couple of weeks longer and the price will be calculated on the day.

Tools and Equipment

The workshop fee includes use of all the tools and equipment needed. All workshops discuss tools, equipment, materials and health and safety considerations.

Cancellations

Cancellations of workshop places and private tuition bookings within four weeks of the event will forfeit the workshop/private tuition fee unless I am able to find someone to take your place. Please let me know as soon as possible if you are unable to attend.

Please note that if you have requested a printable gift certificate they can take up to 24 hours to be produced as each is individually personalised.
