Who is this workshop for?
This Workshop is for you, if you want to take the short route!

If you are looking for a new way of making jewelry, then this is the perfect Workshop for you.
What we will do?
In this privat workshop you will learn about the different types of wax, the basic and extra tools needed for Wax Carving and Wax Building. And you will learn how to use these tools.
We will go into the basic techniques of Wax Carving and Wax Building, and learn about the differences and possibilities.
What will we make?
Not only will we learn the skills of the lost wax carving technique, we will use this knowledge to design and make a jewel into wax. Together we will make a wax ring or pendant, by using the Wax Carving and/or Wax Building technique. With guidance you will carve your unique design from wax and explore techniques for texturing the surface using the tools provided.
You can choose between making a ring (up to 8mm wide), a pendant (approx. 15x15mm).
By the end of the workshop you will have created a wax master which will then be send to our local caster, where it will be cast in recycled silver.
