Ever wanted to try your hand at jewellery making? Worried you don’t have a creative bone in your body? Don’t worry, you do, and we’ll find it together!

In this 2 day workshop, you’ll learn the art of silver jewellery making using the wax casting method. Learn the processes of carving, preparing waxes to be cast in metal and utilising found materials, through to cleaning and polishing your own ring to take home with you. Suitable for absolute beginners, the class is small and limited to 6 students, so you get the attention you deserve. Learn the skills to create a ring of your own design using a variety of wax working techniques, including carving and forming. These will then be cast by a commercial caster in a metal of your choice. On the second day, learn to clean and polish the cast jewellery.

Please note that the course cost does not include the casting fee (approx. $20–$70 for a large ring, including metal, prices will vary according to the weight of the wax object. Please bring $25 with you on day 1).

Day 1 - Feb 7 - (10–1pm) – learn the skills to carve jewellery in wax (3 hrs)
Day 2 - Feb 14 - (10–12pm) –learn to clean and polish your sterling silver cast jewellery (2 hrs)

Expect to spend between $20 and $70 depending on how heavy your carved wax piece is.
