ABOUT THE CLASS
What if I don't finish the ring on time?
We are patient and most of our venues are too. We will not pressure you to finish it bang on within two hours; there's a little give.
Can my ring be made in another material?
It can but it will be more expensive to have the ring cast in solid gold, or platinum. Please let us know ahead of the class if this is what you want to do; they also make great wedding rings.
I want to make two rings! Can I?
You totally have the option to add a second ring. This is a great idea if you have taken a CARVE class before, or maybe want to make a less complex design. Create two unique rings for just £45 extra, and start a stacking collection!
The ring is for someone else, how do I know their size?
Try and obtain a ring from them so we can help you determine the ring size on the day. If it's tricky to pinch the ring, draw around the inner circumference of the ring and bring it with you.
Is there an age limit to the class?
Yes. Unfortunately as we use sharp tools, including knives, we are unable to take anyone under 18 years of age.
Do I need to bring anything?
Nope, just bring yourself! If you have any inspirational materials, you're welcome to take these along too, but it's not a prerequisite.
Your class is sold out, what can I do?
We will have a reserve list so that if anyone drops out, you will be notified. Just drop us an email. We run workshops once a month, so you'll likely get another chance!
I can't make it along to a class I have booked. What do I do?
These things happen! Just let us know. We need at least 48 hours notice when cancelling a class in order to get your space filled, any later and we can't give you a refund.
Sounds like a great gift idea! Do you have vouchers?
Why yes we do! Head on over to the our Workshops page and you can pick up a voucher there.
Do you do private or corporate events?
We love to. We've answered some questions below, but we recommend taking a look at our private events page.
We are getting married and would love to CARVE a ring. Is this possible?
Fantastic! We would love you to come along, you have the option to have it cast in silver, 9ct/18ct white, yellow or rose gold, platinum or palladium. We can weigh the wax on the night once you have carved it and give you an estimation of how much extra it will be in your chosen material. You can also book a Private Event, if you would prefer something more intimate.
I have a cafe/bar/restaurant I'd like you to use.
Brilliant, we are always looking for new venues. Do drop us a line.
Do we need to print out our tickets?
No, no need, we have list of everyone's names, just bring your lovely self.
TIMING & POSTAGE
How long will my ring take to get back to me?
The rings are cast in Birmingham and are usually turned over within the week. Then we hand-finish them in our Glasgow workshop. We do our best to return them to you within 2-3 weeks.
How long is the class?
The class itself runs for 2 hours but could be made longer for larger parties or special occasions.
Why is there postage added to the cost of my ticket?
We used to include postage in the cost of the class but we have now made the decision to send your finished CARVE via Special Delivery to insure the rings. When you book your ticket, you’re adding postage and packaging costs of £7.50 for returning the silver ring to you - with peace of mind it’ll get there safely.
I made the ring but it's for someone else, can you post it direct to them?
Of course, just let us know on the day where it is to be posted to and if it a gift, we will do our best to win you some extra brownie points.
Will my ring be safe in the post?
Yes indeed, we use Royal Mail Special Delivery. If in any case your ring does not get back to you we will endeavour to rectify the situation as soon as we can.
This sounds great, we would love to use it as a team building exercise.
Sounds fantastic, we can come to your place of work or organise a venue for you.
What kind of private functions can you do?
We can accommodate pretty much any function: team building, Christmas parties, birthday's, hen-dos, wedding rings...
Do you require payment up front?
Once we have figured out a date, time and place for your event, we will require a 50% deposit. The remainder is to be paid 48 hours ahead of the workshop.
What's the maximum numbers you can teach?
We can teach up to 12 people.
What's the minimum you can teach?
We need a minimum of 5 people to run a private workshop for you.
How do we hire you?
Fill out our Contact Form and let us know what you are after. We will do our best to help with your enquiry.
Where are you willing to travel?
Within reason, we will travel across Scotland. Where travel is difficult or long we may require travel expenses.
What if we need to cancel?
That's fine, these things happen but do give us at least 48 hours notice and your deposit will be refunded.
At least 48 hours notice is required in order to refund your money.
Please note classes may be cancelled due to lack of attendees. In the unlikely event, you will be fully refunded and notified the day before the class is scheduled.
We are really interested in popping-up in more locations across Scotland, get in touch if you would like us to visit your area and we will do our best to arrange something.
