Calling all the curious folks!

This is a listing for a 2 session ring carving workshop with me at The Colour Factory in Winchester.

This workshop will span two days, a few weeks apart.

The first day will be dedicated to making the 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.

The few week gap is necessary to allow plenty of time for your ring to be posted off to cast (turned into silver) and make it back again in time for part 2/Day 2. I don’t currently have the facilities onsite to do this myself, so a trustworthy third party is taking on this role instead.

Day 2 consists of cutting, filing and polishing your ring so that it’s ready to take it home. This session will be 2 hours.

We’ll go through all of the equipment 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!

Refreshments are provided in the form of biscuits and beverages, no full meals however! The first workshop runs until 9:30pm so please consider this when planning food.

Dates available:

-JAN 13th & FEB 3rd//6:30pm (Wednesdays)

If the given dates don’t work for you, please contact me and we’ll see if we can work something out.

If you’d prefer to only do the one day and have me finish the ring for you, let me know and we can work that out too!
