Wax party!!!!! Looking for something new and different to explore? Join me for a fun, creative, workshop where you will be fully guided through the process of making your very own one-of-a-kind adornment!

Beginning with a slice of jeweler’s wax, we will use simple hand tools to create a basic ring or pendant form. Then it gets fun! You can add texture, special details, or a nice smooth finish. Whatever your vision is, we'll make sure you leave with something beautiful and well-made that you'll be proud to wear. After the workshop, your wax model will be professionally cast in solid sterling silver (or gold if you're feeling fancy!), and lovingly hand-finished & polished.

NO prior experience is required. Please note that this is *not* a technical workshop for jewelers - we will not be delving into advanced carving techniques, the lost wax casting process, casting companies, suppliers, mold making, finishing, etc. Please contact me for customized 1-on-1 jewelry instruction.

Answers to many FAQs are available by clicking the 'WORKSHOP INFO' link at the top of the website (bottom if you're on mobile!) - and I highly recommend having a quick read before signing up!

Date & times:

Private workshops can be booked any time from January onward, as far in advance as you like. Please send me a note after you book to arrange a date & time. Weekend, weekday, daytime, evening - all good :)

Duration: each private workshop runs for 3 hours. If you need more time to work on your beautiful creation, you will have the opportunity to borrow a toolkit to finish carving at home!

Workshop location: Crescent Heights, Calgary - close to 16th Ave and 2nd St NW

-----
Age: 13+ - just to be on the safe side - we will be working with very very sharp tools!!! If you are under the age of 18, you must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

PRICING

The workshop fee includes all tools and materials required to make one ring in sterling silver, or a silver pendant + matching chain.

The cost of a private workshop depends on the size of your group:

solo wax carving extravaganza - $375 (you will have the entire 3 hour workshop all to yourself, yahoo! This is a fab idea if you just need some 'me time', you prefer a quieter setting to create a meaningful piece (such as a memorial piece, or to mark a significant personal event) or you'd like to have maximum personal guidance as you create!)

2 wax carvers - $275 / person

3 - 6 wax carvers - $225 / person

*If there is more than one person in your group and you'd each like to pay for your own workshop, please email me to arrange.

PAYMENT OPTIONS:

Registration fee(s) can be paid by credit card / PayPal right here on the website, by e-transfer, or cash. E-transfer / cash folks, please email info(at)wearprocess(dot)com to request an invoice.
