Ever wanted to make your own jewellery?
Ring, pendant or others, this workshop is the perfect introduction to designing and making your very custom pieces!
In this workshop we will be using the ancient Lost Wax method.
- In the first session:
We will use jewellers wax and carve a wax model of the piece you want to make. Our experienced tutor Macarena Bernal will show you how to do that step by step, so fear not if you are an absolute beginner, you will be well guided! This workshop caters for all levels. Once you’ve crafted your piece of jewellery in wax, it will be cast in either white bronze or silver – whichever you choose!
The wax model you made will be used to create a plaster mould in which molten silver or bronze will be poured into (our tutor will do this tricky bit in between your two sessions)
- In the second session:
Your casting will be back, at that stage you will be finishing youe piece. Filing, carving and cleaning it up to make it look just like you dreamed it!
WHAT TO BRING?
We provide all materials and tools, and organise the casting for you at your own cost.
Casting prices will vary depending on size, weight, and metal of choice. As a guide, a 3.5g wax ring can cost $15 in silver and $8 in white bronze approximately.
