A fantastic course that's full of fun and inspiration!
Over 4 weeks you'll experiment with many exciting techniques. You'll learn how to work with jeweller's hard wax to create beautiful textures in metal that can be used in multiple ways; you'll also learn techniques in soft modelling wax to create organic rings and more, and expand your range of designs and skills with the wax you prefer using.
You'll learn to set raw precious stones into your wax designs to be cast-set in the metal of your choice and how to trim, clean and finish your casts, turning them into original jewellery ready to wear!
More advanced students can learn to set cabochon or faceted stones in one of our regular evening classes using fabrication techniques.
Course costs include basic materials for the process, but do not include the metal costs for the pieces you choose to cast. As this is subject to each students' choice of size and type of metal, we leave this up to you to decide. Casting costs vary: rings, for example, may cost between $5 and $50 depending on whether you cast in Silver or Bronze (casting in bronze or brass will be much cheaper).
We require anyone entering our premises to be fully vaccinated against Covid 19 and we will need you to email us a copy of your pass.
