Written and visual instructions to help you navigate each step of the way including how to plan a design, using your tools to shape your material and what’s involved in finalising your creation.
As part of our packs, you can get online help from us through a messaging platform or Facebook group. We're here to answer any questions you have, give helpful tips over a video chat and you can also check out what other learners are asking/doing.
Once you’ve carved your ring from the wax blank, pop it in the reply-paid envelope provided and send it back to us for casting, refining and polishing. If you choose gold plated as your ring finish, plating will also be included.
In your pack you'll find a postage-paid envelope to send your ring back for casting. Once it's casted, refined and polished, we'll send the finished ring back to you and cover all shipping costs.
If written instructions just aren't for you, you'll also get access to video tutorials that describe each step of the process in extra detail.
We do ship our packs internationally. However, if you are outside of Australia you will need to send us your ring using your own shipping method. Unfortunately we can't organise reply-paid postage from other countries.
You design a ring and carve it from jewellers' wax using the tools provided. You then send it to us for casting, refining and polishing.
We make a mold using the ring you've sent us. (pictured is several rings ready to be cast)
We cast the ring by pouring molten metal into the mold. The metal replaces the wax and the result is a perfect replica of the wax ring you created.
When your ring is released, we remove the sprue (the small attachment left over from casting) and refine it.
We also machine polish your ring so that it is ready to wear! (You can also do this yourself if you prefer, we have video tutorials.)
We know the best things are shared. Looking for a group activity or a team bonding exercise? If you're buying packs for 4 or more people, we'll give you a 15% discount.
Everything you need to craft a wooden spoon from raw timber. We’ll show you how to sketch a shape and use the knife and gouge to carve out your creation. You’ll then finish it off with sandpaper and food-grade oil so it’s ready to use. (This pack is designed for one person.)See PACK →
Dazzling yourself in jewellery isn’t for everyone. If that’s the case, take a look our Wood Carving Pack. There’s nothing like carving your own spoon to make you feel like a regular Ron Swanson.
