Welcome to my online workshop on carving a signet ring in jewellers wax.

This live class on Zoom is your opportunity to learn step-by-step how to carve a plain signet ring in jewellers carving wax. This is an intermediate class and some previous wax carving experience is necessary. You'll also get to choose your signet shape on the day of our class: round, oval, or square.

This class does not include any stone setting, sprueing, casting or finishing. By the end of this class, you will have the basic foundations covered. If you choose to carve in class you will have one signet ring finished in cast-able condition!

Important: Classes are strictly hosted in English!

Can't wait to have you!

Prerequisites

Some previous wax carving experience is necessary for this class. This class is intermediate. Students will need to source and secure all the necessary tools listed in the Tools List before class if they wish to participate in tandem. You are encouraged to make your booking ASAP if you are watching the demonstration only. Please note that the classes are strictly conducted in English. Students must make their own purchase.

Course Details

In this intermediate signet class, I'll demonstrate how to use hand tools along with marking and measuring for precision/symmetrical wax carving. By the end of the class, you will have a strong foundation in carving a signet ring in jewellers wax - with a good handle on how to mark and measure wax tubes for precision carving. If you choose to carve along with me, chances are you will have a finished signet ring in a cast-able condition. Please note that stone setting, sprueing, casting and finishing techniques are not included in this class.
