This workshop will be covering the basics of the jewellery making process called, “Lost Wax Casting”.
What you should expect to learn from this workshop is an introduction of the materials and tools used, the different applications and process.
The workshop will be used towards a practical guide in how to shape and form certain design ideas, where you can familiarize yourself with the materials and begin to make as many simple projects/ ring designs as you would like.
Materials will be provided in a work package.
In your work packages, you will be provided with:
1. 1 Slice of purple wax 3mm thick,
2. 1 Slice of blue wax 2mm thick
3. 1 slice purple ring wax, 2mm thick
4. 1 slice round blue wax, 3mm thick
5. Wire waxes will be available upon use
Please make sure to bring a sketch or photo inspiration of a design, in any format (digital, physical, etc).
Should you have a completed design to your satisfaction at the end of the work session, you have the option to move forward onto the casting stage if desired.
*NOTE: This stage is not included in the workshop pricing and the cost to cast will vary on the weight of the piece, as well as the alloy chosen
(sterling silver, brass, gold in 10k, 14k,18k, etc)
If additional time is required, you are more than welcome to take with you, any work in progress for further practice or completion.

We hope you can make it!
