WAX CARVING WORKSHOP
Hand make your own unique silver Ring, Pendant or Brooch.
Would you like to dip your toes into being a jewelry designer and hand make a silver Ring or Pendant?
Join Daphne for a creative and educational jewelry making workshop. Where we will use the ancient technique of ‘Lost Wax Carving’ to hand make your design in wax, which will then be cast in silver. No experience is required as you'll be guided through the process from start to finish.
Wax Carving Jewelry Workshop
What we will do?
In this workshop we will learn the basics of the lost wax carving technique, and use this knowledge to design and make a jewel into wax. 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) or 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.
After arriving back from the caster, Daphne will hand finish your piece according to your specifications and post it back to you in a beautiful gift wrapped box within 3 weeks max.
Wow you really get an inside look at the jewelry workshop! So nice to see for yourself what steps are needed before you have a piece of jewelry. Really special that you can wear your own design. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to do a relaxing and educational workshop with a friend or your mother.
The time flew by! With super much pleasure and in supreme concentration, I made a silver signet ring in memory of my mother. I am really pleasantly surprised by the result. What a great ring it turned out to be! Daphne is an expert in her craft and can explain and guide very well. This workshop is highly recommended if you want to make a piece of jewelry for yourself or for someone else, even if you have no experience. Everything breathes craft and attention. With fine tea and delicious treats, and special conversations that arise naturally. Thank you Daphne!
It was wonderful to do! And a very nice, relaxed atmosphere. A small group, which made it cozy and everyone got good tips and attention. Also in terms of length just right! Oh maybe I had to mention 1 thing. The most fun was to fiddle with the wax and all the tools.
