MOLTEN LANDSCAPE RING: LOST WAX CARVING WORKSHOP
Join us to learn the process of lost wax carving to create a molten landscape ring of your own design! We'll start with a wax tube and slowly carve it into your own personally designed ring. You are welcome to make more than one final ring to cast. This is a 2-3 hour class, plus a second 1.5-2 hour polishing session.
Your workshop includes
▹ two sessions: your initial carving class plus a comeback session to sand and polish up your piece to wear
▹ access to all applicable tools to complete your piece
▹ learning some basic techniques like filing, sizing, sanding, polishing
▹ wax to complete your project (metal for your ring(s) is extra)
During our session together, once you are happy with your wax ring we will have it sent to be cast into metal. This is done offsite and starting at $45 for brass. Sterling silver and a variety of gold options are available to choose from as well. (Pricing is based on the final weight of your ring which we will go through together). When your ring comes back, it is ready to be cleaned and polished. This is typically 2-3 weeks after your initial class.
▹Each workshop is private. You are welcome to come solo, or book with a friend or two and all come together. Once one ticket sells for a date, that time slot is sold out. I will reach out after you book to confirm you're coming solo or if you'd like anyone to join you.
▹Collect some inspiration photos on your phone of what you'd like to create prior to the class!
▹Everyone coming to the same session will be doing the same project type.
▹No previous goldsmithing experience required! As we do some fine detailed work, if you require glasses to see up close, please bring them along!
