Wax Jewellery Class -  This beginners workshop covers the designing and making of a ring using jeweller’s wax that will be cast into sterling silver.

No experience is necessary! Just a love of jewellery and a desire to make. This is a very fun, relaxed and creative experience, likely to inspire and kickstart a new hobby.

Over an afternoon at my place, you will carve and shape your ring from a wax blank. Your wax will then be sent away to be cast into sterling silver and returned to you a couple of weeks following. To begin with, we’ll focus on getting you comfortable and familiar with carving wax and getting those ideas flowing. Then we’ll start making and shaping your ring, perfecting your design so that you're happy with it. In a few weeks time you will have your own very precious ring that you have crafted yourself!

All materials, snacks and drinks are provided.

What to bring:

  • Ideas! Though no pressure on this side of things, we will come up with an idea that works for you.
  • Rings you like to wear as a bit of inspo and for discussion.
  • Casual clothes, it’s not too messy but you don’t want to be worried about getting wax on you. BYO an apron if you like.
  • Your glasses if you have trouble seeing things up close.
