Wax carving & casting one-to-one workshop
This full day wax carving and casting workshop is a great introduction to jewellery making and you will leave with a silver ring or pendant that you have made. It is a method that offers beginners a way to work without expensive equipment. For the more experienced it can open a world of new forms and structures that are not able to be made other ways. Through one-to-one tuition, you have an unlimited access to expert guidance, tools and equipment. You can bring your own ideas and inspiration or follow one of the set projects that will be available. Scott will guide you through the process of carving a ring or pendant in wax. We will then use this to make your own casting in the studio, leaving with a solid sterling silver piece of jewellery. ABOUT ME I creates unique pieces that blur the boundaries between traditional hand skills and contemporary design. Graduating with a BDes in Jewellery & Metal Design from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in Dundee, I then achieved an MA in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing and Jewellery from the Royal College of Art in London. Immersed in the beautiful and visually rich South Coast, I have developed an interest in colours found living by the sea, specifically the rich hues of dawn and dusk. An advocate for traditional handmaking skills, I am an experienced goldsmith with a wealth of experience that goes beyond art college training. Passionate about self-development, I have spent a number of years working alongside classically trained goldsmiths, sadly considered a dying breed. Previously holding posts as Head of Teaching with Holts Academy of Jewellery (now the British Academy of Jewellery) and as a lecturer in Fashion Jewellery with London College of Fashion, I regularly teach short courses in Brighton. ** please be aware that the workshop area is on a mezzanine level accessible by stairs only **
