Lost Wax Ring Carving Workshop - $300
Learn the art of carving and shaping wax to create your own unique ring. Once you have the knowledge, lost wax carving is something you can continue from home without the need to purchase a lot of expensive tools after the workshop. You can apply the skills you learn in this workshop to carve brooches, earrings and pendants. You also receive making instructions, a list of tools and where to buy them, and all the information you will need to get your pieces cast.
For some inspiration on the types of pieces you can make using the lost wax process check out the Pod Jewellery Pinterest board on Lost Wax Casting Carving.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS COURSE WE WILL HELD OVER TWO HALF DAYS.
On the first half day you will work with wax to carve your ring. The wax rings will then be taken to Melbourne to be cast in silver (included in the course cost) or gold (at an additional cost). We will gather again for half a day one week later to finish off our gold and silver rings. If you'd like to make a ring band, you may want to consider the one day Silver Ring Making Workshop.
No previous experience is necessary.Written instructions, a list of suppliers, tool list and morning/afternoon tea included. All tools and materials (except gold/platinum) are provided. A sterling silver ring weighing 20 grams is included in the workshop cost. 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.
Workshops are held at the Rundell & Rundell Piper Street workshops behind their store at 29 Piper Street Kyneton. Kyneton is a one hour drive north of Melbourne along the Calder Freeway.
A $100 deposit is required to secure your place. The balance of $200 is payable in the week before the workshop.
