WORKING WITH WAX WORKSHOP
During this 2-class workshop tutored by Sylvia Nevistic, you will be introduced to carving and manipulating wax. A 4.5hr session on the first Saturday will give you plenty of time to create your pieces in wax, which will be sent off to industry to be cast using the lost wax casting technique. Once castings have returned the following week, they will be cleaned up by you and turned into wearable pieces using traditional jewellery making techniques. Light refreshments will be provided on the first Saturday.
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.
