Casting Classes

Casting is an amazing and ancient way to create jewellery!

An excellent technique for absolute beginners to achieve fun results; more advanced students can develop and refine their skills to reach amazing levels of detail and complex designs.

We have several options for learning:

The 6 week Lost Wax class that runs as an evening class from 6-9pm, 

or a weekend workshop in low tech casting techniques that happen right in the studio.

Lost Wax Casting Workshop

Wed Evenings for 6 weeks, 6 - 9pm

Level one: learn the techniques of working with wax to create beautiful textures in metal that can be used in multiple ways. A fantastic course that's full of fun and inspiration! Students learn carving in hard wax, texture forming in soft wax and how to clean up and finish your metal pieces. Course costs include basic materials for the process, but do not include the eventual metal costs for the pieces you choose to cast. As this is subject to each students' choice of size and type of metal, we leave this up to you to decide. Castings may cost between $5 and $40 depending on whether you cast in Silver or Bronze. Casting in Bronze or Brass will be much cheaper.

Level two: expand your range of designs and skills with the wax you prefer using. Learn to set stones into your designs and either: Cast them IN the metal (exciting and organic) or, more advanced students can learn to set them in a fabrication class.

 Next class: starts
