JEWELLERY-WAX CARVED SILVER RING
In this full day jewellery wax carving workshop, taught by Bernie Ellen Jewellery, you will learn the basics behind carving in wax and the tools used to do so. Students will be taught the differences in waxes and which ones to use in their work, how to create organic texture and how to weigh the wax to work out how much it will cost to have it cast in sterling silver.
This is a very hands on class in which you will complete two wax carvings and will have one of those cast in sterling silver. Bernie will do the finishing of the castings and then post them out to you once finished. She will also provide you with casting companies details and encourages you to make contact to have your second piece cast so that you get to know the industry and how to order what you want.
You will learn:
- The difference in wax
- How to measure and carve from wax blocks
- How to create organic jewellery using wax pens and soft wax
- How to calculate weight of wax to silver
All materials and tools are provided. Please wear clothing you don't mind getting messy.
Price includes costs for posting your ring to you once cast and finished.
