WORKING WITH WAX WORKSHOP
During this private 2-class workshop run by jeweller and object maker Sylvia Nevistic, you will be introduced to carving and manipulating wax, which will be sent off to industry to be cast using the lost wax casting technique. Once castings have returned, they will be cleaned up and turned into wearable pieces using traditional jewellery making techniques.
No previous jewellery experience is required for this class, but if you have some basic jewellery fabrication skills, this workshop will add to them and give you more practical and innovative techniques to create with metal, while also providing you with contacts and lots of tips and tricks for casting projects in the future.
There will be additional charges for the casting fee and the silver/metal that is used for your pieces, which is dependent on the metal price for the day.
10AM – 1PM
