Make a silver ring from wax over two mornings. Just in time for Mothers Day! Make a ring for yourself, your mum or bring her along for some serious one on one mother-child love. For those of us who can’t be with our mums, this could also be a lovely way to make a special memento to celebrate them. Spaces limited to 6 people.
In this workshop, you’ll learn the art of silver jewellery making using the lost wax casting method. Learn the processes of carving and preparing waxes to be cast in metal, through to cleaning and polishing your own ring to take home with you. Learn the skills to create a ring of your own design using a variety of wax working techniques, including carving and forming. These will then be cast by a commercial caster in a metal of your choice. On the second day, learn to clean and polish the cast rings.
Beginners welcome – no previous experience required. Suitable for ages 12 – 99!
