Wax carving is a fantastic skill to learn if you'd like to make more adventurous pieces in metal. It lends itself well to organic or geometric designs.
The process of wax carving jewellery starts with the wax piece being made. This is taken to a caster where a mould is made, melting the wax and pouring molten silver or gold in to make a solid silver version of your wax mould.
Please note, this is a one day class so the process of carving will be taught and your tutor will explain the casting process. A casting company will be recommended but there won't be time to cover this in the class.
You will learn:
Basic designing for wax carving
Qualities and properties of different forms of wax
Using wax carving tools to achieve your designs
Making finished wax carved masters ready to cast
Full information on how and where to get your wax pieces cast locally and affordably and much more...

fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be
provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
The use of all tools and wax as well as tea and biscuits!
Please note: as this is a one day course we will only be working in wax as we will not have time to send the piece off to be cast into silver. You will leave at the end of the day with your wax pieces and we will give you full information of places that you can take them to to have them cast into gold or silver.
