Wax Carving Class
In this special skills class you’ll learn how to carve wax ready to be cast in the traditional lost wax casting process used by jewellers, you’ll also learn how to clean up your casting and turn it into a finished piece of jewellery. This course is a full day followed by a half day. The first day you will design and create your wax carving. The second half day you will collect your casting and learn how to clean and polish it into a finished piece. The half day is usually two weeks after the initial wax carving class.
You’ll be given a group demonstration and then one on one support to design and create your piece of jewellery.
We’ll supply the experience, wax and the tools you need. We’ll work in a purpose built jewellery studio with small class sizes and plenty of one on one tuition.
The course fee does not include the cost of the silver – this will depend on the weight of your final piece. A rough estimate for your silver cost would be between £10 and £20. If you’d like to check with us about the additional cost please ask and we’ll be happy to help.
