Ring | Wax Carving Workshop
Spend an afternoon or an evening getting creative and learn new skills of jewellery making with my One-On-One wax carving workshop. Craft your very own unique ring from wax with personal engraving or by adding unique textures of your choice on the ring.
The ring can be carved in any shape you choose – round, square, oval or can be added unique textures or shapes you name it. After the carving the ring can also be embellished with your on design or I can help you to decide whats the best way to finish it.
After the workshop you will receive a list of tools and step by step written copy with pictures of how to do your own ring at home. This workshop is for 2 hours if the tutorial is one-on-one; 2.5 hours for 2 people and 3 hours for group of up to 4 people.
This workshop is perfect as a gift for somebody or a treat for yourself and can be done in larger groups or couples if you wish.
The ring in the pictures is by wonderful student Alia Paienda – talented wedding photographer based in Paris.
We had several classes online and in person to build her beautiful jewellery collection. For the ring workshop Alia chose to carve her ring with bezel stone setting, cast it in silver and then gold plated. She also had some personal engraving on the inside of the ring. All of these options are available for additional charge.
Please note the price is per person for the workshop and does not include metal of your choice to cast your wax in. You can choose from either silver or gold.
Learn the art of wax carving with Dovile either at the comfort of your own home via Video call or in my home studio in Walton-on-Thames. With all wax carving tools and materials provided (or sent to you via post), you will learn how to make your very own signet ring that is one-of-kind and completely unique. I will guide you and demonstrate step by step actions of making a truly beautiful ring that fits you perfectly once complete.
If you wish your class to be online, you will be posted all the tools needed. In the jewellery making kit, posted to you, you will be provided with all the tools you need, as well as waxes and the box to return your wax and tools back to me. Once your ring is cast into precious metal of your choice I will then hand-finish it following your instructions and post it back to you. All postage is free of charge. Once the casting will be finished you will be invoiced to pay for the price of metal, this gives you flexibility to choose your own metal, wether it is brass, silver or even gold!
This is 2 hours workshop and is perfect for complete beginners with no previous jewellery making experience needed. Before the workshop I do recommend having a rough sketch or an idea what kind of ring you would like. (however, I can give you some ideas for inspiration too.)
Please select the date suitable for you for the workshop. After the purchase we will contact you to book the time suitable for you.
All waxes and tools being returned must be carefully packed in their original packaging and returned to me within 14 working days of your class to be cast. After this your wax will be cast and hand finished and delivered back to you within 4 weeks.
