Our wax carving class is for you if you want to give wax carving a try and have some fun!
Learn the ancient art of lost wax casting in our brand new 2.5 hour workshop.
Cost is only €99. This includes carving, casting and clean up of your ring, tea/ coffee, snacks and expert tuition.
You will carve your own ring on the day and it will then be sent off to be cast into sterling silver. The ring will come back approximately 3 weeks later and our team of goldsmiths will then finish the ring for you, by sanding and polishing it.
What is wax carving and how does it work?
For centuries, Jewellery artisans have been sculpting their own Jewellery designs from wax!
You start by learning about the lost wax casting process. You will then be shown samples of wax rings before and after they were cast. Your tutor will then give you a sample piece of wax to practice carving before moving on to getting creative and carving your own ring.
You have the option to make a standard width ring (that is included in the price) Or you can choose a thicker ring for and extra €20, including casting.
Embrace your creativity with your designs while our expert will help you bring your idea to life, while learning new skills.
This wax carving class is suitable for complete beginners and those looking to learn something new while having some fun.
Once you’re finished carving your design, it’s then ready to be cast!
How long does the class run for?
The class is 2.5 hours. And this includes, all material and your finished sterling silver ring.
After class we take your carving to professional casters who take a mould of your design. They then pour the silver into your mould to create your piece of Jewellery. It will be returned to us within 3 weeks and we will clean up your casting to your chosen finish – matte or shiny – and return it to you once that’s finished!
The finishing touches
Once your piece has been returned to us, our team of Goldsmiths are on hand to clean and polish your ring. This is included in the class fee.
