Becki Chan Silver Ring Workshop

Date: May 14th, Saturday

Time: 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Place: MakerLabs, 780 E Cordova St.

In this 3-hour wax carving workshop, we will take you through each step of the process - from an introduction to the tools, ring design, sizing, wax carving and polishing. We will provide instruction and share tips, but our workshop has no strict lesson plan. We would like you to enjoy yourselves and create your dream jewellery.

Previous experience in jewellery is not required, nor is any sculpting or drawing skill. The wax carving process uses basic tools, which makes it easy for everyone to design and carve a unique and personalized ring.

Step 1. Big block of wax!

Step 2. Carve block into base form of ring.

Step 3. Engrave wax with details. Done!

We will cast in sterling silver, then file and polish to make the finished product!

Step 4. Pick up the ring in 2 weeks. Same place; same time. Easy!
