Event description
Casting for the time poor. Cuttlefish casting allows you to design, create and wear home the same day !

About this Event

In this full day Workshop with John you will create your own Sterling Silver piece by carving a block of wax by hand, the wax will then be cast using the age old Cuttlefish Casting method, turning the wax impression into metal which you will then file, emery and polish to finish the cast piece. You will learn the techniques required to make a unique piece that reflects your own personal style, and you will complete it and be able to wear it home on the same day.

Wax carving is one of the most accessible forms of Jewellery making for the beginner, it is one of Johns favourite techniques to employ when making a piece. Cuttlefish Casting is a more rudimentary way of casting compared to the Lost Wax method, which we also offer in another Workshop, and does restrict the amount of detail you can achieve, so the designs will need to reflect that. However, what it does give you is the ability to start and finish your piece in one class - perfect for those that are time poor!

Your Workshop will include the following:

  • Instruction from a qualified Jeweller of 36 years experience
  • All tools and equipment necessary
  • All Sterling Silver required to create your bespoke piece
  • Morning and afternoon tea
  • Lunch

Check out John's work @ www.johnmcaleer.com.au and also on social media @ JohnMcAleerJeweller

Please note:

A non-refundable deposit of $100 will be retained from the ticket purchase price in the event of participant cancellation. No refunds will be offered after ticket sales have ended.

In the unlikely event a Workshop does not run due to minimum numbers not being met, we will attempt to accommodate participants on another date.
