The Lost Wax jewellery making process is so fascinating and the possibilities are virtually limitless! In this course, you will have the opportunity to design and create your very own custom-made sterling silver ring by learning how to carve and manipulate wax. Your wax ring will then be cast into silver and just so you can fully understand this process, your instructor will teach you the theory of lost wax casting. Once your beautiful carving has turned from wax to silver you will learn how to sand, file and polish your masterpiece.
With small class sizes and the program spread out over four classes, you will have the opportunity to have in-depth lessons and more one-on-one assistance.
All of the materials and equipment are provided for this class and no experience is necessary. Please wear close-toed shoes, comfortable clothes, your hair tied back and no scarves or loose clothing (such as long open sleeves that could pose a safety hazard)
Workshops will not run until sufficient enrollment has been met. We recommend students register at least 10 days before class start dates to avoid disappointment.
The more the merrier! Feel free to spread the word to friends and family as this helps ensure classes will fill to capacity.
Dates: May 7, 14, 21 & 28 (Thursdays)
