In just two studio sessions, you will complete your own set of stacking ring bands. The first session is a wax working class, where you will carve and sculpt your designs for a few stacking metal rings. Wax is a forgiving material that can be shaped fairly quickly, and making multiple rings will let you experiment with different shapes, patterns, and textures. We will have your rings cast into the metal of your choice for the second class, and you will do some metal working to clean up and finish the surface of your creations.
The course fee includes all materials except the cost of casting which will be on a ring-by-ring basis. We will collect a 50% deposit for casting at the end of the first session, so please bring your checkbook. You will leave the second class with your finished set of stacking rings!
