Jewellery workshop May 18th Amsterdam

105.00 - 165.00

Come and make your own jewellery during our workshop!

A great class for anyone who is interested in making jewellery, even if you have no prior experience with goldsmithing and jewellery design. In this 3,5 hour jewellery making workshop we will bring you step-by-step through the 6000-year-old sculpting process of carving wax to produce a wax-master. These masters are used in the casting process of jewellery and sculpture making. You will be introduced to a variety of techniques, including carving and malleable wax forming and the use of different tools typically used in goldsmithing. After the workshop your unique design will be cast in sterling silver by us. We will then polish the ring, ready for you to wear!

Class description

This class starts from the beginning and covers everything you need to know about the process of the lost wax method. There are relatively few tools and materials needed to work with wax and the results are always great. You will learn to saw, file, refine and create your own unique designs in wax. We will have enough time to try out several things and to make a number of designs.
