There will be a chance to have your wax carvings cast in your chosen metal or simply spend your time perfecting your wax carvings.

Materials
The price of this workshop includes the use of all tools, wax and cubic zirconia stones (CZ’s).

If you choose, silver will be charged at £2 a gram so that you can create your own stunning one-of-a-kind ring, pendant or earrings. For anyone simply looking for experience in wax carving may choose not to have their pieces cast.

As a guide, a very heavy silver ring could weigh 18 grams. Your wax will be weighed and a cost will be calculated at the end of the first session.

The cast in place process is perfect for ruby’s, sapphires, cubic zirconias and diamonds under 3mm. We will be working with cz’s but you are welcome to bring your own stones.

You’ll take home your original creations, plus worksheets allowing you to continue your new hobby in the comfort of your own home with the knowledge of how to create more pieces with a basic toolkit.
