Wax Carved Rings for Casting with Jessica Noble
2 Days (10 hours)
1st Workshop - Wax Carving
2nd Workshop - Finishing Silver Casts
Learn the tactile and suprisingly fun art of wax carving and have your wax creation cast in Silver before returning for the second sesssion where you will learn how to 'clean up' your raw silver casts into beautifully finished rings. A traditional tecnique, you will first be guided in measuring your ring and marking it out on the wax blank before going through to learn basic carving techniques and creating one of your own distinctive and gorgeous silver ring.
Class numbers are small (up to 5) so the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, as well as giving you lots of individual help and support from the tutor and good access to tools and equipment.
What will I need to bring?
With classes being in a professional workshop environment, things can get a little bit messy so we suggest that you bring an apron, wear old clothes and closed toe shoes. If you have long hair - bring a hairband! It might also help to bring a notebook, pen/pencils and a container or small tool box to keep your work in.
We look forward to seeing you there!
