Make a simple but beautifulwax carvedring in just one evening!And your ring will be totally unique!
This class is a great introduction towax carvingand is often taken before doing ourBeginners wax carving course and is a great one to do with friends as a fun evening out.
Throughout the evening our experienced tutor will guide you through the process ofsizing, shaping and carving the wax using hand tools and heat, adding a texture to your ring if you like.
The casting process involves creating a mould of the wax, melting the wax and pouring molten silver in to make a solid silver version of your wax mould. A great class for anyone interested in making jewellery. Like the majority of jewellers who work in business we use a casting company to do this processing and will arrange for the casting to be done for you. You will be taught about the process and the logistics of how to get your own pieces cast.
By the end of the class you will have created your unique wax carved ring which we will then arrange to be cast into your choice of metal (Silver, Copper or Bronze), and it will be completely polished and finished for you ready to wear. Your ring will be posted out to you within 3 weeks of the class or you are welcome to collect it from the School. Please note that we will only post to UK addresses.
The course price includes casting your ring into silver, polishing and finishing so it is ready to wear.
As with all of our classes, all materials are included in the cost of the class as well as plenty of tea,coffee and luxury biscuits! The classes are all run by expert tutors with years of professional experience who are friendly, knowledgeable and approachable.
