Collection: Ríng Makíng Workshops

Come and learn the art of wax carving for jewellery to create your own silver ring ~ !

Amongst the clouds and lush hanging greenery, we invite you to design, file, carve, and polish a celestial piece for yourself or someone x-tra special.

Classes are small and personal, with 2 to 4 participants per session, running for one or two casual sessions of 4 hours each. No prior jewellery making skills/experiences are necessary, and all cosmic beings are welcome.

 

 

Workshop Options:

 

One Session of Wax Carving for a Silver Ring

This hands-on creative session includes experimenting with wax mediums, tools, and techniques, as you are guided through the process of carving jewellers wax to realise your ring design. On completion of the session, you will have carved and finished your own wax ring to be ready for casting into precious metal.

Finished wax models will then be sent to our local casting house for lost-wax casting. In short, this is a process whereby the wax model melts and the metal takes its place in a temporary mould scenario. 

Your finished piece will be a solid silver ring.

Your piece will then be finished and polished for you by hand, and ready for pick-up from the Studio two weeks later :))
