About the Course
Learn the age old technique of lost wax carving - a fascinating way of making silver and gold jewellery by carving jewellery out of wax, then creating a mould of the wax, melting the wax and pouring molten silver or gold in to make a solid silver version of your wax mould. A great class for anyone interested in making jewellery.
In the class, all students will learn to carve and shape the wax into different shapes and design whole pieces of jewellery in wax. Students will be able to make a number of designs throughout the course as well as learning the techniques.
Topics and areas usually covered in this class include:
- Basic designing for wax caving
- 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...

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.
