Join us for an exciting new craft experience here in sunny Nelson.
The Ring Fling is a social workshop where you can create your very own ring design. We guide you through the fun wax carving process and at the end of the workshop you leave your creations with us to be cast into silver (or gold) and completed to a finish of your choice.
No experience is necessary as we will guide you through the design and carving process showing you little tips and tricks along the way so you can make your ideas a reality.
Workshops are small groups of 6- 8 people. Ring Flings are held at our Nelson workshop or you can book your own Ring Fling party!
|"I was pleasantly surprised by my ring fling experience with Yvon and Allison, having never sought to participate in a creative workshop before. The atmosphere was chilled, and it was nice to zone out on a new task whilst chatting with friends. I am impressed by the final products from the wax rings that we each engineered, and the anticipation of waiting for your ring to arrive a couple of weeks later is an added excitement. I would recommend this experience to any group of friends, particularly as a party or to celebrate another occasion." Gavin ~ Nelson|
|"Yvon & Ally created a friendly, fun, and relaxed environment for us to work on our rings. It was easy to ask questions and they were great at demonstrating techniques for ring shaping. I was really impressed with the quality of the finished product and would highly recommend "Ring Flings" - fun to do with friends or work mates." Shona ~ Nelson|

Different ring shapes and sizes are available for larger rings with a surcharge to cover the extra materials, this is calculated by weight.
A typical Ring Fling takes 2½ hours with a short break for tea and coffee.
Rings take approx 2 weeks to be cast and finished by hand in our workshop.
Prior to the Ring Fling, we advise you come to our workshop and have your ring size taken so we can prepare your blank ring waxes to the correct size. This allows you more time for the fun stuff.
Gift vouchers are available if you want to treat someone special to a Ring Fling!
