This course is designed to give you an introduction into working with different types of jeweller’s waxes as well as learning to make a silicone rubber mould. 

You will start by exploring waxes, which are used for jewellery making and which are suitable for the lost wax casting process. If you have never worked with wax before, you will learn to carve a simple ring or a pendant. If you are a returning learner, you will be guided to produce a more complex piece. You will be shown how to create different surface textures on wax as well as pouring techniques to create interesting patterns and shapes. 

To duplicate your design and to get multiple wax copies, you will be shown how to make a two-part silicone rubber mould, using the wax piece (master) you produced. 

The course will also teach you techniques of how to fill your mould, with simple equipment, such as a hotplate and saucepan. By the end of the second day, you will have your original wax master, a silicone rubber mould as well as some wax copies of your original design, which you can adapt and manipulate to receive new design variations. 

Date and time: 22 - 24 Mar 2022 (Tuesday - Thursday), 10 am - 4 pm
Cost: £240.
