Wax Ring Workshop
This event takes place at Joynton Avenue Creative Centre, Zetland.
In this brand new purpose built studio space students will learn the art of carving and shaping wax to create a unique ring of their own.
On the first half day, students will have the opportunity to experiment with different types of wax and make one or two wax rings that will be cast by a commercial caster.
The week after, students will refine their piece with final polishing and finishing techniques.
After this workshop you will be equipped with the skills to continue wax casting from home. It doesn’t require expensive tools and you can also carve brooches, earrings and pendants.
This is a private 4-student workshop run by jeweller and object maker Anthony O’Connor.
No previous experience is necessary.
Written notes will be provided for your own pursuits and making, including instructions, suppliers list and tools list.
The casting fee is an additional cost and will depend on the weight of your piece, and whether you want it cast in sterling silver, brass or bronze (average cost $40-$60).
$260 incl. GST (normally $320)
