Restrictions

All Ages

Over two sessions, two weeks apart, on 8 June and 22 June, create stunning jewellery using the age-old lost wax technique.

In the first session you'll learn how to work with jeweller's hard wax to create beautiful textures in metal that can be used to create amazing rings. Your waxes will be sent away for casting in the metal of your choice. The classes are two weeks apart to allow time for everyone's waxes to be cast.

The second session covers how to trim, clean and finish your casts, turning them into original jewellery ready to wear! More advanced students can use these sessions to complete projects in a class setting.

Included in the class fee are all your different types of waxes, sandpaper and courier costs. Not included are the casting and metal costs which vary from student to student depending on what sized ring they want to make and the type of metal you choose. Small castings can cost around $6.65 - $8 and might cost between $7 to $20 in metals depending on if you use brass, bronze or silver.

This class is great for teens and kids over 12 or so. Anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an enrolled parent or caregiver.
