Wax Carved Signet Ring with Stephen Barnett FRIDAY 31st May 10-5pm

£155.00 Inc VAT

In this class we will explore the techniques of creating a wax master for a signet style ring. Using traditional wax carving techniques you will learn how to carve a ring of your own design to a professional standard, to a specific finger size and the correct dimensions to allow for shrinkage in casting and clean up and finishing.

The signet rings can be any shape you desire and embellished with engraved or carved details.

Once the rings have been created during your time with us, you will be able to get them cast. We will guide you through the casting process talking about both how lost wax casting is used in the jewellery industry, and how to set up an account with a professional casting company.

Please come to the course with some rough drawings of your ideas (they don’t need to be perfect, you do not have to be a skilled artist, however it will assist you with your initial design plans).

This is a fantastic opportunity to experiment with a fantastic versatile carving material that has been a mainstay of the jewellery design industry for over 500 years.
