Join Manawatu jeweller Vaune Mason for this wonderful intro to low-tech casting! With Christmas fast approaching, it is a great opportunity to make some gorgeous lasting jewellery gifts for your loved ones!

The class will be held in Vaune's lovely rural studio location in Apiti. With a maximum of 5 students, this will be a wonderful creative experience and fantastic results.

You will be shown the exciting processes of low-tech casting. You will learn to melt and pour sterling silver, copper, bronze or shibuichi (a mix of silver and copper) to cast into either rings, earrings or pendants. We will cast rings into wood, and experiment with salt and water casting.

The resulting pieces can be turned into amazing, completely unique pieces of jewellery - we will make rings, pendants or simple earrings with your selected pieces.

This is a fun exciting process for those who just want to try their hand at it, or a very useful low-tech process for those who are making jewellery into a career or creative activity.

Course cost excludes metal, students can expect to use $60 - $80 worth of silver or $20 - $30 of copper.
