Not only does this day include all the wax you will need but you will be shown sawing, filing, and polishing the wax, But you will be trying out different surface decoration and finishing on your pieces of wax.
We will teach you how to make a wax ring from a wax tube before moving on to a piece of sheet wax to create a small charm/pendant, you will learn to saw, polish and carve the wax. Experiment with piercing ( cutting outing with a saw) a pattern into the wax. Guidance will be given throughout the workshop.
All wax pieces will be sent off to a professional casting company to be turned into silver and will be ready for collection 2 weeks after the workshop date. This is included in the cost of the workshop. Please note if you wish to create a bigger/heavier item there will be an additional charge for the silver casting process but we will advise you beforehand.
