About the Masterclass:

Learn to carve jewellers wax to create your own ring using the lost wax casting method. We'll carve with files, pick with tools and melt with flame until you've made yourself a masterpiece. Jewellers wax is a medium like no other; easy to get lost in and can take on so very many forms. We will explore different shapes, textures and techniques (please note, this workshop does not include working with stones).

No two rings are ever the same, just uniquely yours! At the end of the session, Elly will collect all your finished wax moulds. They're then cast in solid silver, after which Elly will tackle the processing for you, and return to you your shiny, finished piece. Making jewellery is wonderful but sharing the experience is more-so, this is my way to get people involved and bring them closer to a slow and conscious way of creating.

About the artist:

Elly Pepper is a predominantly self-taught jeweller; creating one-off pieces from recycled solid silver and gold, and ethically sourced stones. Her works range from simple studs to future heirloom pieces, as she enjoys continuing to build her skillset and experimenting with new techniques.

As a trained horticulturalist, her work is continuously inspired by nature, the earth, and the beautiful stones she holds, particularly Australian opal. Elly began offering wax workshops mid 2021, hoping to bring to life the opportunity to make a gift instead of buying it, an experience for you and your loved ones to create treasures you will hold forever, made by your own two hands. Her dream of bringing people together over food and drink to create is well and truly alive within these workshops!

The Mill's Masterclass program runs throughout the year as a professional development program for artists, offering workshops with established international and national touring artists in both performance and visual arts. These diverse sessions draw South Australian artists into global conversations around aesthetic, performance and creative practice.
