Using the ancient method of lost wax casting, in this two week class course you will learn to carve wax rings, embellish them and have them cast as well as master finishing and polishing techniques. The aim of this course is for you to come away with at least one finished ring, and either a finished second ring or one that you can finish at home.
For the first two classes, everyone will make the same style ring- though that varies wildly. This is to make sure you all pick up the same skills and finish one piece off.
Studio Kingfisher will provide all materials needed, as well as list of where you can purchase this equipment for home use. You will take your pieces to an external casting house to see how it works and build relationships (though we can take it for you). You will need to pay for all castings plus GST. We only cast in sterling silver on this course to keep your costs down.
You may want to read our reviews to hear about other peoples experiences on this course and see if it is for you.
This course can hold up to eight (8) students which will mean that you get enough personal attention from the teacher. You need to be over sixteen (16) to attend this class, have good eyesight, or bring glasses with you and have fairly steady hands. You need to have hair tied back, wear sensible clothing and bring an apron as you may get covered in a fair amount of wax shavings. You do not need to have any previous jewellery making experience - this course is suitable for complete beginners.
