Service Description

A fantastic course that's full of fun and inspiration! Create interesting designs in wax then send them off to be professionally cast in metal. Once your pieces are back you will be taught how to cut, file and shape them into wearable pieces. Level 1 students: Learn to work in both soft and hard jewellers' wax and send your waxes away to be cast. When they return you will learn how to clean them up into finished jewellery and/or incorporate them into jewellery in multiple ways. We start with rings but encourage students to think outside the box! Level 2 students: Advance your carving skills and learn to set stones in your waxes. This can be done either by creating claws and other settings or trying the cast-in-place technique - an organic, exciting process. Included in the class fee are all your different types of waxes, sandpaper and courier costs. Not included are the casting and metal costs which vary from student to student depending on what they want to make. Small castings can cost around $7 - $10 and metals are between $0.35 cents per gram for bronze - $4 per gram for silver. Please see details on our Regular Classes page. Our booking system asks for payment to be made via credit card, PayPal or Afterpay on booking. If you do not have access to these payment methods or need to pay your course fee over time please email us to arrange this ;)
