Course description

Learn Wax Modelling for Silver Casting in Sydney.

This fun, structured and relaxing Silver Jewellery – Wax Modelling for Silver Casting 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 encourages students to re-enrol in this course or join our Silver Jewelery for Beginners and Beyond course if they wish to work on their own project or at their own pace.

All materials and tools are included, except of 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.

Course testimonials:

  • Keri said: I really enjoyed this course. For me, having a goal for each lesson would have helped me make sure I was on track. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to finish my wax mould in time so it could be sent for casting after the third lesson. Overall, I'd do this course again, it's extremely good value and it was nice to be in a class with a small number of participants.
