Have you ever wanted to create your very own jewel?
Hand carving your special piece to the very last little detail?
This is possible with one of my workshops in the lost-wax technique.
Using different types of wax you can create a piece ready to be casted in to a precious metal of your desire..
In my art Studio we will sit together and i will take you through the history and different processes needed to create your very own special piece..
Workshops that will be available:
▪ 1-3 evening workshops.
These will be short workshops for beginners. 3 hours per evening where i will teach you the basics in the lost-wax technique. With this workshop you will be able to get the feel in wax-carving and hopefully create a small piece.
▪ Weekend - 2 day workshops.
Weekend workshops will give you 2 full days of 8 hours per day to learn about the lost-wax technique in detail and create your own piece.
▪ Longer periods are possible in consultation.
Teambuilding, work events or groups that just want to have fun creating their own jewel together (i.e. weddings party's etc) are also welcome :-)
Included in the workshops prices:
▪ All materials and tools needed.
▪ Small booklet about the lost-wax technique.
▪ Tea, coffee and drinks.
▪ In addition to the workshop prices, is also the price of the jewel after it has been casted, this varies depending on the weight and the precious metal that is chosen.
Should you love your piece and choose to have it casted, i will be using my own Silversmith who i go to on a regular basis for all my casting work. It is also possible that you have your own contacts for casting, which is no problem of course.
Either way these extra costs for casting are not included in the workshop prices.
▪The Use of precious stones, gems and pearls is not included, you are always welcome to bring your own stones.
▪Stone setting is also not included.
Workshops will start in 2019
Dates and prices will be available soon
