Wax carving is a really interesting and effective method of making silver jewellery. The process involves carving a piece of wax into the shape you want. This is sent to a professional caster and comes back as a silver copy of the shape you carved, ready for you to sand and polish. Very intricate pieces can easily and quickly be made using this technique and you can use this technique at home with minimal tools.
This 2 day course is ideally suited to those who have taken a beginner course in wax carving or have some carving skills. You will be designing a piece of jewellery in wax that incorporates stones and will experiment with casting methods such as embedding stones in wax to create unique pieces of jewellery. Once the wax is cast in metal it is finished and polished and ready to wear.
This course is a great opportunity to develop your wax carving skills in a friendly, easygoing environment
