Lost wax casting

145.00

6th & 7th October

10:30am to 5:30pm

On our lost wax casting course you spend your time designing and carving your own ring or pendant. You will attach wax sprues and create “wax trees” of all the work. They will be set in a steel flask in investment powder (plaster of paris) and left in a kiln over night to allow the wax to burn out. Molten silver is poured into the flasks to create metal versions of the wax carvings which you will then spend the rest of the time cleaning to filing to finish with your own unique cast piece of silver jewellery.

Please note that 30g silver is included in the cost of the course but more can be bought from us, or you can bring your own casting grain. Old unhallmarked silver is not permitted to melt down and use.

Course led by Mirka Janeckova
