Silver Ring Workshop with Becki Chan

In this 3-hour basic wax carving workshop, we will take you through each step of the process - from an introduction to the tools, ring design, sizing and wax carving. We will provide instruction and share tips, but our night 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!

Becki will take your wax template back to Vancouver and will cast it in sterling silver,  file and polish to make the finished product, and ship it back to Lore.

Step 4. Pick up the ring in 2 weeks at Lore. Easy!

  • No experience necessary + all supplies included.
  • Wax ring size is range from 5-14.
  • Wax width 5mm.
  • Space is limited to keep instruction optimal and intimate.
  • Don’t know her/his ring size? Bring one of their rings and I will tell ya.
  • If you want to sign someone up for a workshop as a gift, we'll send you a gift box with a piece of wax and a small note inside. So you have something to give them!

About your instructor: Becki Chan (www.beckichan.com) creates handmade jewellery and art objects from her studio located in Vancouver, British Columbia. Given Becki’s educational background in sculpture and architecture, she finds beauty and inspiration in structure and geometry. Each piece is developed out of Becki’s sculptural work and is defined by a stripped-down vocabulary of form. Cast in silver, elementary lines and simplified shapes combine and repeat, with slight variations and irregularities.
