Carved and Cast Wedding Ring Workshop - $1100
This couples private carved and cast wedding ring making workshop is held over two sessions, which are at least four days apart. This workshop is ideal if you would like to make a wedding band that wraps around your engagement ring.
In the first session, we measure your finger and then work with wax to create your ring. You will use files and carving tools to create your unique wedding ring.
At the end of this workshop, the ring is then taken to Melbourne to be cast in the metal of your choice.
After the ring is cast, you return for the second session where you work directly with the metal to file, sand and polish your ring or I can finish your rings for you. After the rings are finished, a mould of the ring can also be made for an additional $100. If your ring is ever damaged or lost, you can easily have another one cast.

Here's what other couples have to say about this workshop:
"To be completely honest, Bec was absolutely amazing. We absolutely love our wedding rings we made in one of her lost wax work shop. Our wedding rings look professionally made and just utterly incredible. Each time I look at our rings my heart melt. Since completing our rings, I have done nothing but show them off to everyone I have never been so proud of something in my life. I would and already have been recommend Bec and her workshop to everyone and anyone! And Bec, again thank you so much for being absolutely awesome and so patient and kind! You are the best!"
