During the first session (Sunday 21st November) we will make our ring/pendant model and try out various wax carving techniques: creating form and texture through building up, carving, sawing, filing, piercing, and sizing your ring/pendant, and then preparing it for casting. You can design, experiment, play and create with the wax until you get your piece just right. After the first class your finished wax will then be taken off-site and cast into sterling silver. In the second session (Sunday28th November) we will learn how to properly clean and polish your casting, from removing the sprue, to filing, to sanding and finishing. Best of all, this workshop will set you up with the skills to continue this process of making at home *Cost includes access to basic materials, tools and your own sterling silver ring/pendant. Please note, complex and bulky designs may incur an extra fee if more than 15grams in weight. **Options available to gold-plate your finished castings / source and set-stones. This is calculated on an individual basis and can be discussed with your tutor once you have enrolled. ***Full amount payable upon booking to secure your place.
