Wax Carving Jewellery / Sculpture Workshop - Make A Ring/Pendant/Earrings (Cornwall)
In this class we will do some wax carving! You can make a ring, one large pendant (up to 3cm) or some earrings (up to 1.5cm each in size). If you would like to make a particularly chunky piece you are welcome to pay the price difference (for example the hare sculpture seen in the pictures would cost an additional £50 or so to be cast). If you would like your ring cast in gold this is also an option, but you will have to pay for the gold required (gold is x60 more expensive than silver so this may be costly!). This can be arranged and paid for on the day if desired. This class is suitable for beginners and is an great introduction to wax carving. We will break each stage down step by step throughout the class, however you won't be able to leave wearing your creation... the casting process takes some time and I will post the final product to you within 3 weeks. I tutor up to 4 people in one session. More can be accommodated, but I will need to bring another teacher in - so only on request! This will take place in my studio in Penryn (near Falmouth), Cornwall. Please note, my studio is shared with a few other artists so there may be other people around while I'm teaching. Courses can be up to 4 hours long. Age Restrictions Classes are suitable for anyone over 12; for ages 12-16 they will need to be accompanied by an adult who is also booked into the class. Please click the 'message the tutor' button if you have any questions at all!

Depends which course you are booking onto and how many people are attending. If you are the only person attending, most courses will be complete within 3 hours. For groups of 3 or more you are looking at 4/5 hours for most courses.
If you are going to get hungry over the course of the session I'd advise bringing a pack lunch. There is tea and coffee available at my studio, but there isn't many shops within walking distance.
There is indeed, there is usually parking directly out front but if this is unavailable There will be parking available within the yard.
