Thursday lost wax casting

105.00

Thursday 13th September - 11th October

6pm-8pm

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 silver is not included in the cost of the course but 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
