Make your own silver ring in this 3.5 hour wax carving workshop
In this one-day jewellery making workshop we will bring you step-by-step through the 6000-year-old sculpting process of carving and molding wax to produce a wax-masters. These masters are used in the casting process of jewellery and sculpture making. You will be introduced to a variety of wax working techniques, including carving and moldable wax forming as well as learning the use of different kinds of wax.
After the workshop your unique design will be cast in silver by a commercial caster.
We will then remove the sprue, emery and polish the ring ready to wear.
This class starts from the beginning and covers everything you need to know to set up for creating your own collections in wax from home. There are relatively few tools and materials needed to work with wax and the results are always great.
A great class for anyone who is interested in making jewellery, even if you have no prior experience with goldsmithing and jewellery design.
You will learn to saw, file, refine and create your own unique designs in wax.
Students will be able to make a number of designs throughout the course as well as learning the difference between the different kinds of wax.
Topics usually covered in this class include:
- Basic designing for wax caving
– Qualities and properties of different forms of wax
– Using wax carving tools to achieve your designs
The costs of the workshop including material and 1 silver ring are 110 euros.
As with all of our classes, all materials are included in the cost of the class as well as plenty of tea and biscuits! The classes are all run by expert tutors with years of experience as goldsmiths and designers.
The size of the classes is kept small to allow plenty of one-on-one attention.
The maximum number of students for this class is 4.
The course will take 3.5 hours, in which we will have time to understand how the process of the lost wax casting technique works and to try out several designs.
Of course you can bring stones or other objects you would like to add to mount in your ring, we can give you advice on how to do this the best in wax.
If you have any questions regarding this, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
PLEASE NOTE: AS THIS IS A ONE DAY COURSE WE WILL ONLY BE WORKING IN WAX.
In the following 2 weeks we will have the rings back from cating and we will polish them for you, so you will be able to pick them up, or we send them to you. In the price of the workshop there is 1 silver ring included*, but of course you are welcome to make as many as you like.
You can book a place for the workshop by sending us an email and then we will send you all further information regarding the payment.
We are looking forward to having you in our studio!
Verena and Sophia
