AT HOME wax carving!!!! prerequisite - prior workshop attendance
This is a special treat for all you pro wax carvers out there. If you've been to an in-person workshop before, you're in the club, you've got the skillz - here's your chance to put them to good use!! You'll have an entire WEEK AND A HALF (!!) to take a toolkit and wax home to work independently - tons of time to create special details, shapes, textures, engravings - I can't WAIT to see what you come up with!!!
- this is a self-guided creative experience. All tools & materials will be provided, but please note - no class / tutorials / demos. You got this!
- IF you get stuck with your carving along the way, don't panic!! I'm always available to steer you in the right direction. Nobody will drown on this voyage, I promise! :-)
PREREQUISITE: to sign up, you MUST have taken an in-person workshop with me previously.
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
Prior to your scheduled two week window, you will be able to book a 20 minute (in person) appointment at my studio in Crescent Heights, to pick up your kit & have your ring wax(es) sized to a perfect fit. I look forward to seeing you again! If you need some basic assistance with your design during this time, or would like to look at gemstone options, I'm happy to help!
At the end of your block, you'll drop off the tools & finished waxes, we'll sort out finishing details, and you'll receive your finished works in 10-ish weeks!
WHAT CAN I MAKE?
a ring? a pendant? an objet d'art? teeny tiny sculpture? whatever you can dream up, we'll make it happen.
You can take home extra waxes if you have lots of time, and think you might make more than one piece. Extra casting & finishing work can be paid for whenever you like. Simply return any extra unused waxes with your toolkit & finished carving(s).
WHAT ARE THE COSTS?
The take-home workshop fee ($185) includes all tools and materials required to make one ring in sterling silver, up to 5 mm wide. Looking for something a little bolder / heavier / more statement-y? Rock a wide band / signet ring for an additional fee. This can be paid by e-transfer when you have finished carving your ring.
Additional pieces can be cast in sterling silver & hand-finished & priced by weight.
Yes, we can cast in gold or platinum too if you're dreaming up a super extra special piece!
CAN I USE MY DISCOUNT CODE?
No need! I'm offering the take-home kits at a reduced price to thank you for being a part of this AWESOME creative journey with me! Your support means everything and I could not have made it this far without you. xoxo - jules
