About the Course
A two hour workshop carving a ring from jewellers' wax to be cast into solid silver. Learn from jeweller Maggie Cross as she guides you through wax carving techniques for lost wax casting.
Have fun making something special with a personal touch. Carve a unique, one of a kind ring using jewellers wax and a selection of tools. Your bespoke wax ring will then be sent to a casting company in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter who will cast the wax into solid silver using the process of lost wax casting. The rings will then be hand-finished and posted back to you.
Maggie will begin by introducing herself and the techniques involved with wax ring carving. She will be on hand to guide you and answer questions throughout the session. At the time of your workshop, you may choose to upgrade to a wide ring or decide to make a second ring. These two options will incur extra charges payable on the day.

What's included in the price?

Our venue's licensed café will be open for you to purchase drinks or food should you wish.
Please note that we have an under eighteen policy due to the sharp tools used in this workshop.
Lovely evening, really engrossing process, and very pleased with our wax casts, can't wait to see the finished products (couldn't resist, had to make two rings!).
