A 3 hour course introducing you to the art of wax carving and sculpting to create your very own unique ring to be cast in silver or gold.

You will be working with Jewellers Wax, which is incredibly versatile and allows you to create something 3D, abstract, classic, chunky, geometric or organic, so you can let your imagination run wild!

Hosted, in a traditional flint barn workshop which is nestled amongst the South Downs in the beautiful Cuckmere Haven (close to Brighton, Lewes, Eastbourne & Hastings). 

You will be given a short introduction to the lost wax process and will shown the tools and techniques used to in wax carving. You will start by designing/sketching out your ring, (samples and images will be available for inspiration) before beginning to carve your wax.

Once you’re happy with your finished carving we will show you how to prepare it for casting.

After the workshop your wax carved ring will be cast, finished and polished using recycled silver or gold (an additional charge will apply for very chunky silver rings or  gold castings).

Your finished silver ring will be ready for collection or posting within 3 working weeks after the class.

You will be contacted once it’s ready for collection or we can post it out to you.
