Design jewellery inspired by architecture – a partnership with the Royal Institute of British Architects
We’re very excited to announce that we are partnering with the Royal Institute of British Architects and will be running a beginners wax carved ring workshop in the gorgeous art-deco RIBA building.
What: Wax carved ring inspired by architecture
Where: RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London
When: 3rd November 2018, 11-4pm
Suitable for complete beginners
This taster workshop will be run by an LJS tutor at RIBA’s iconic art-deco building where the incredibly intricate interiors can be used to inspire your ring designs. We just love all the gorgeous details of this fascinating building. Take a look at some of the carving that you’ll get to see
With our expert guidance, you’ll then use hand tools to carve and shape your designs throughout the rest of the day. We’ll take you through the process of sizing, shaping, applying heat and how to add intricate detail and texture to your carvings.
By the end of the workshop you’ll have created two rings in wax, and have learned about the full process of wax carving and casting jewellery. The difficult part will be selecting your favoured design to be cast offsite. With a choice of silver, copper or bronze, your spectacular ring will be fully polished and finished for you or the intended recipient to wear. We’ll post your ring to you within 2 weeks of the workshop.
This event is for students and adults aged 18 and over. It is suitable for complete beginners and we have a maximum of 7 students per class allowing lots of one-on-one attention from our experienced tutor.
