Intro
(...) A tube in wax is the starting point for sawing and filing your own ring. You can process the wax in different ways to create a piece of art. (...)
Each of our workshops offers an extensive introduction to a specific
technique or method of design. You will be completely immersed into
 the subject matter and will receive plenty of background information,
 enabling you to continue working independently afterwards.

Some of the workshops are open to beginners, as no prior knowledge or
skill is acquired. In the advanced workshops specific techniques are
developed for which you already need to master the basic jewelry 
techniques.



The studio works with 1 regular lecturer (Lotte De Mey) and several
visiting lecturers. All lecturers have several years of experience in 
the subject matter that they teach and have proven both their artistic
and technical merits. With these standards we can offer you a unique
range of high quality workshops.

A tube in wax is the starting point for sawing and filing your own ring. You can process the wax in different ways to create a piece of art. You can build your form by adding different kinds of wax (plate, wire, pearls,...) The lost wax technique offers you a lot of possibilities.

When the ring in wax is finished, it is cast in silver by a specialized firm, after which we have to finish it. The price of the silver is not included in the course. It depends on the size of your piece. You can have something cast starting from 20 €. You decide how many pieces you want to make.

This is a beginners course, everyone can participate.
