Wax Carving Jewelry Workshop
Wax Carving Jewelry Workshop
Create and hand make your unique wax ring or pendant with your own hands.
Fancy a fun creative moment for yourself? And always wanted to know and feel what it's like to be a jewelry designer? You can! Spend a morning, afternoon or evening together with max. 5 others and immerse yourself in this super fun and creative jewelry making workshop. For this workshop we we will use the ancient technique of 'Lost Wax Carving'. We will explore the different carving techniques to create your very own design in wax.
What will we do?
In this workshop I will teach you the basics of the lost wax carving technique and you will use this knowledge to design and create a piece of jewelry in wax. Under guidance, you will file and model your unique design out of wax and explore techniques for creating textures in the surface using the tools provided. The choice is yours whether you prefer to make a ring (up to 8mm wide) or a pendant (approx. 15x15mm). After 2.5 hours of being completely captivated by this technique, at the end of the workshop you will have made a wax model completely to your likings and your design.
*If you have opted for the WORKSHOP ONLY, you can have your created design being cast in Silver for an additional cost of 98 euro. Your piece will be taken to our local foundry. There your unique design will be cast in recycled Silver. After returning from the foundry, I will hand finish your silver piece of jewelry and ship it to you in a beautiful gift box within a maximum of 2 weeks. (also possible to have your piece Gold Plated Silver or 14k solid Gold)
*If you have opted for the WORKSHOP + SILVER RING OR PENDANT, your wax model will be taken to our local foundry. There your unique design will be cast in recycled Silver. After returning from the foundry, I will hand finish your silver piece of jewelry and ship it to you in a beautiful gift box within a maximum of 2 weeks.

This Workshop opened up a whole need world of creativity for me. It was susch a pleasure to meet you and be guided through the evening. I cherish my ring and I will come back for another class for sure!
I had a great time and I totally forgot time while I was carving away. The best thing was that I could make my own design, and Daphne was very helpful in making that happen. Now I am super proud of what I made and I love wearing my own creation. Thank you Daphne!!
I came together with my friend, she gave me this Workshop as a present and I am so thankful. I now not only have a beautiful ring that I made myself but also a very nice memory. I love Daphne's work and everything was taking care off. If you will host the signet ring class I will join again (and invite my friend)
