Learn the age old technique of lost wax carving – a fascinating way of making silver and gold jewellery by carving jewellery out of wax, then creating a mold of the wax, melting the wax and pouring molten silver or gold in to make a solid silver version of your wax mold. A great class for anyone interested in making jewellery.
In the class, all students will learn to carve and shape the wax into different shapes and design whole pieces of jewellery in wax. Students will be able to make 2 designs throughout the course as well as learning the techniques.
The classes are all run by expert tutor Andrea Roberts with years of professional experience, friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. The size of the classes is kept small to allow plenty of one-on-one attention and the maximum number of students for this class is 4.

Previous knowledge about lost wax carving level 1 NOT required

Besides different harder waxes there is a great option to ‘sculpt’ your projects by using a softer, stickier wax. This kind of wax is applied where harder wax won’t be able to ‘do the job’. Sculpting wax can be moled to give you more of an organic look. You will be able to create little miniature objects by hand without a mold directly or create molds by using templates from objects like: shells, buttons, textured templates or even carve patterns directly into the hardened polymer clay mold by using wax carving tools or burs attached to the flexible shaft machine.
