Great news for newcomers - no prior wax carving experience is necessary to join this class! Students should purchase their own classes. The classes are hosted strictly in English.

Course Details

We will focus on carving a basic stacking ring with either a smooth curved profile or a knife-edge. You'll learn about various tools and their roles in creating your ring. While we won't cover sprueing, casting or finishing - this class provides a solid foundation to wax carving at the introductory level.
