Absolute Beginners Ring Carving Workshop with Emily Smith//The Metalsmith in Winchester

Wednesday Evening Class

This evening will be dedicated to carving and shaping a piece of ring wax (the blue model in the pictures). We’ll size the ring so it fits you, then play with a number of tools and techniques to make something you really love! You will have up to three hours to create your ring.
Your wax ring will then be posted off to be cast in silver. I don’t yet have the facilities in-house to take care of that here (but I’m working on it!). It can take two to three weeks for these to come back.
If you opt for the one-day workshop, I shall finish the ring for you, according to the preferences that we will have discussed earlier. Following this, I will be in contact and arrange to pick-up/deliver/post a parcel to get your ring to it’s new home!
If you decide the two-day workshop, you will be invited back at the same time on Wednesday 11th August, once the ring has returned in it’s silver form, and I shall take you through the processes of ‘finishing’.

You don’t have to bring anything with you, but I’d advise wearing clothes that you’re not too fussed about – the wax gets everywhere!
We’ll go through all of the equipment that you’ll need to create your one-of-a-kind piece, touch on health and safety, and I’ll be there to answer any and all of your questions! Workshops are currently limited to one person, or two if you book together (which also gets you a little discount!).
Refreshments are provided in the form of biscuits and beverages, no full meals however! The workshop runs until 9:00pm so please consider this when planning food.
Ages 16+ only. Payments are non-refundable but can be transferred with at least 5 days notice prior to the booked class.

Total Price for One Day/One Person – £120.00
Total Price for Both Days/One Person – £150.00
