About this Event
During the session you’ll be introduced to specialised hand tools and techniques required to shape the wax into your chosen design. This includes cutting, filing, melting, modelling, texturising and sanding to produce unique wearable pieces to be cast in sterling silver.
This workshop is suitable for all! From complete beginners wanting to try something new to intermediate/experienced makers who want to develop their skill set.
All you need to bring is a notebook and pen to sketch your designs, and an apron is recommended if you would like your clothes to stay wax free - all other materials and tools are supplied.
You will create your own ring in wax that will be cast by us in sterling silver (up to 15g included) – we will then finish and polish ready for you to collect at our Morphett Street studios in Adelaide CBD.
The workshop includes lunch and a drink on arrival. Additional drinks will be available at the Queen's Bar.
We look forward to meeting you!
Please let us know if you have any access or dietary requirements so we can accommodate.
