In this 2 session course, we go over the rules and theory of directly setting stones into wax before casting.
This is an exciting course with lots and lots of practice that can just be fun or a breakthrough for many jewellers.
We supply all the wax, models and nano manmade stones that you can buy in the class if you choose to keep them and cast. With that and lots of help the rest of your time is for supervised exploration.
All of our classes are taught as though you will be working from home at a kitchen table so everything you learn you will be able to repeat at home. With that in mind it is essential that you have some experience of wax carving carving and casting - we do not teach from beginners for this course.
This class is practice only, anything you choose to cast will be taken in by you in your own time and be finished at home or in your studio.
If that sounds appealing book in and come along and have some fun- there will be cake!!
All bookings directly through the Studio Kingfisher website can also use afterpay.
There is currently an early bird booking discount of 20% for this course until the end of August. The discount will appear automatically in the checkout.
