Learn the art of carving and shaping wax to create your own unique ring. Once you have the knowledge, lost wax carving is something you can continue from home without the need to purchase a lot of expensive tools after the workshop.
You can also apply the skills you learn in this workshop to carve brooches, earrings and pendants. You receive making instructions, a list of tools and where to buy them, and all the information needed to get your pieces cast.
Please note: course is held over two half days.
On the first half day you work with wax to carve your ring. The wax rings are then taken to Melbourne to be cast in silver (included in the course cost) or gold (at an additional cost). Then the group will gather again for half day one week later to finish off their gold and silver rings. If you'd like to make a ring band, consider attending the one day Silver Ring Making Workshop.
No previous experience is necessary. Written instructions, a list of suppliers, tool list and morning/afternoon tea included. All tools and materials (except gold/platinum) are provided. A sterling silver ring weighing 15 grams is included.
