MAD WAX JEWELLERY WORKSHOP
In this intimate two-part Masterclass located in the heart of Brunswick, you will design and create a simple ring or pendant by learning the ancient technique of lost wax casting. All tools and materials are provided, all you need to bring with you is your inspiration.
The session is guided, with multiple demonstrations throughout. The aim of the class will be to help you bring your designs to life. As a university lecturer, I have exceptional communication and teaching skills, catering to your individual needs.
This workshop will run across four hours, over two consecutive weekends.
I cannot speak highly enough about the Keepsake Workshop!
Regardless of individual “skill” level Nadine made everyone in the class feel comfortable, at ease and equipped each of us with the tools to create stunning, take home pieces.
Nadine’s creative professionalism, her warm and engaging nature and being able to walk away with a hand crafted, personalised piece of jewellery made this workshop a truly memorable experience!
The Keepsake Jewellery workshop is the best thing I did this year! I have always loved Nadine’s work and went into the workshop with no experience - just a hope to wake up some creativity. I had a simple design in mind and my fingers crossed that my piece would look ok.
Nadine was authentic, warm, encouraging and full of knowledge. Her ability to give everyone in the workshop 1 on 1 direction for their pieces was incredible and I loved watching the groups individual pieces come to life. She has incredible expertise and design knowledge and I learnt so much from Nadine about technique and the process of jewellery making. I felt empowered, supported and very capable and loved the intimacy of working within a small group on something so, so special.
I now have a beautiful, heirloom piece made by me for me that is beyond anything I could have ever imagined. I am itching for the next workshop I do with Nadine. I cannot thank her enough but I know I will be seeing her soon.
I loved this workshop. Nadine is a wonderful teacher – attentive, knowledgeable and easy-going. Everything was so thoughtfully organised, all the tools and materials (and cookies!) arranged and ready to use, and plenty of time to experiment and play while the ideas come together.
I met some lovely people, learnt a lot about lost wax casting, and best of all I emerged at the end with a etched gold wedding band for my partner, designed and made by me! I never would have thought I could make something so beautiful (if I do say so myself!).
I can’t recommend these classes enough, and have already signed myself and my bestie up for round 2!
