Silver Jewellery Course: Wax Modelling for Silver Casting

What you'll learn

Learn to design signature jewellery with our jewellery short courses in Sydney.

This fun, structured and relaxing silver jewellery course invites absolute beginners who ‘believe’ that they aren’t creative, through to people with an art or craft background to learn basic jewellery making skills.

Wax modelling is an excellent way to create intricate silver jewellery pieces easily and quickly. In class, you will be designing and carving a wax ring or pendant model into your desired shape, which will then be cast off-site in sterling silver, ready for you to add any finishing touches and polishing. This course can be ongoing and we encourage you to re-enrol in this course or join our Silver Jewellery Making Course: Beginners 101 if you wish to work on your own project or at your own pace.

All materials and tools are included, except for the sterling silver casting. The casting cost will vary depending on its size and weight. Please feel free to discuss your project with your tutor to estimate your costs.

You'll be able to create your own unique jewellery or create limited edition ranges of silver jewellery for sale.
