View Classes

Interactive online jewellery making class in Wax Modelling & Silver Casting and other Silver Jewellery Courses in Sydney.

Learn how to carve jewellery wax to create a jewellery piece using the ancient lost wax casting process in the comfort of your own home with our new online class.

Wax modelling is an excellent way to create intricate silver jewellery pieces easily and quickly. Our tutor will guide you through the process of designing, mapping out and carving a piece in wax into your desired shape.

When you have completed carving the wax, you will need to deliver the wax to a commercial casting company such as Pure Casting or Palloys in Marrickville to have the wax piece cast into metal, for example, sterling silver or bronze.

Once it is returned to you from the casting company, you will be guided through the process of adding any finishing touches and polishing.
