Learn the art of wax carving and sculpting to form your very own ring, in this widely used jewellery making technique. This class is designed to provide you with the essential groundwork needed for wax carving all whilst enjoying a glass of bubbly in a relaxed, creative environment. Carving wax gives you endless options to freely design whatever ring you want, as you are not limited to a silver wire or strip. This technique allows you to create something 3D, abstract, classic, chunky, geometric or organic, so you can let your imagination run wild! The workshop begins with a short introduction to the lost wax process and its uses. Ros and Milena will inform you about basic tips and tricks on how to design a comfortable ring. Showing you various techniques and the tools that can be used. You will then start by designing/sketching out your ring (samples and images will be available for inspiration), before beginning to carve your wax. Once you’re happy with your finished carving we will show you how to prep the ring for casting. After the class your wax carved ring will be cast, finished and polished by Ros and Milena using recycled silver (it can also be cast in gold for an additional cost, and paid for & decided on the day). We will contact you once it’s ready for collection or we can post it out to you (within approximately 2.5weeks).
