Come and learn the art of wax carving for jewellery to create your own silver ring ~ !
Amongst the clouds and lush hanging greenery, we invite you to design, file and carve a celestial piece for yourself or someone x-tra special.
Classes are small and personal, with 2 to 4 participants per session, running for a casual four hours with a lunch break. No prior jewellery making skills/experiences are necessary, and all cosmic beings are welcome.
This hands-on creative workshop includes experimenting with wax mediums, tools, and techniques, as you are guided through the process of carving jewellers wax to realise your ring design. On completion of the session, you will have hand-carved and finished your own wax ring to be ready for casting into solid sterling silver.
Finished wax models will then be sent to our local casting house for lost-wax casting. In short, this is a process whereby the wax model melts and the precious metal takes its place in a temporary mould scenario.
The costs of casting and weight of silver are included in the price of the workshop.
Your piece will then be hand-polished, and ready for pick-up from the Studio two weeks later :)) Your finished piece will be a solid silver ring.
All tools are provided during each session, alongside aprons and any safety gear. A beautiful handmade booklet detailing the process, tools, casting info, and suppliers will also be yours to take home. You will then have the knowledge to continue on in anyway you please ~ make your own rings for friends and family, start your own business, take things sky high ~ !
Tea, coffee, and a lush lunch will also be provided.
Our Studio is located in Collingwood, Melbourne 3066.
