Event description

Description

I'm pleased to be welcoming Jane from Hex Cavelli to the studio for an introduction to wax carving for casting. This one day workshop will introduce a variety of techniques to allow you to carve waxes ready to be sent for lost wax casting. A great way to expand your making skills and develop your jewellery designs, lost wax casting offers an opportunity to reproduce forms and produce small batches of work. The class covers a range of sculpting processes, advice on preparing the waxes to send to a caster, thinking about design considerations like weight and sprue positioning and how to finish your pieces after they have been cast.

The class fee covers all tools and wax to work on during the day (there will be plenty of time to experiment and refine your waxes). For an additional £40 payable to Jane on the day of the class your wax will be sent to the caster, finished and polished and returned by post to you.

This class is better suited to someone who has some silversmithing experience and would like to develop a new skill, or a beginner who would like a single finished item (in which case the £40 extra option would be essential).
