Learn the art of carving and shaping wax to create your own unique ring. Jewellery made using this technique is carved from a piece of wax first and is then cast in sterling silver. No previous experience is necessary. 

Working with wax is really relaxing, students often describe it as therapeutic. Many people who have completed this workshop have continued making jewellery from wax as a hobby. A number of people have started their own small businesses making and selling their own jewellery.

You can apply the skills you learn in this workshop to carve brooches, earrings and pendants. You'll receive making instructions and all the information you will need to get your pieces cast. 

On the first half day you work with wax to carve your ring. Your rings is then taken to Melbourne to be cast in silver (included in the course cost), or for an extra fee gold or platinum. One week or two weeks later, we gather again for half a day to finish making your ring.

To see pieces made by students in this class have a look at the Pod Jewellery Lost Wax Class Pinterest Board. This is the workshop you need to do if you'd like to make signet rings.

Once you have the knowledge, making pieces from wax is something you can continue from home without needing to purchase lots of expensive tools. These lost wax jewellery making tool kits have all the necessary tools you need to start making from home.

For some inspiration on the types of pieces you can make using the lost wax technique, check out the Pod Jewellery Pinterest board on Lost Wax Making.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS COURSE IS HELD OVER TWO HALF DAYS IN THE AFTERNOON. If you're unable to make the second half of the workshop on the date listed, get in touch to arrange joining the second half of the workshop at a later date. 

As this is a half day workshop, some people also choose to also attend the Silver Earring Workshop, which is held in the morning before this workshop. We work directly with sterling silver in the Silver Earring Making Workshop, so you'll get an understanding of working directly with metal in the morning and then learn a completely different technique of working with wax in the afternoon.

This workshop is a pre-requisite for the Stone Setting in Wax Workshop. 

If you'd like to work directly with silver to make a ring band, rather than making a ring from wax that will be cast in silver, consider attending the one day Silver Ring Workshop.

Workshop includes:

  • Afternoon tea
  • Tools and equipment
  • A sterling silver piece weighing up to 15 grams
  • Written instructions
  • List of suppliers
  • Tool list

If you would like to make a heavier ring, you can pay for the extra silver, which will be charged at cost price. 

If you'd like to buy a workshop as a gift but you're not sure what date the recipient will be able to go, you can purchase a Pod Jewellery Gift Certificate. This gives the recipient the flexibility to book into a workshop at a time that suits them.
