An ancient method of jewellery that was used in Roman times, Lost Wax Process is the making of an object, and casting metal into the negative space, after a plaster mold has been made of it.

Carving a piece of jewellery uses a few different art muscles than painting or even metalsmithing, as it is mostly the art of taking away…but the beauty of wax, is that you can add medium back to your piece too!

Tara Shelton has been carving darling creatures, totems and fine jewellery since 1997.

A gemmologist and silver/goldsmith, Tara will give you a great start to taking up this home-based creative hobby.

Starting with a block or blank of wax, you will carve a ring or pendant in the first session, also learning filing, measuring and considerations for objet or jewellery design.

Come with an idea in mind, or choose one of our suggested designs.

Tara will take it into Sydney for Casting, and pick it up and finish the piece, by filing, polishing and applying other finishing touches and patinas, to your customised requests.

It can also be arranged for small gems to be provided and set into your finished piece.

Included: Materials, use of tools, and up to 15grams of silver (any excess will be paid for by the participant), coffee, tea, cheese & biscuits.

Tools are available to purchase, if you decide to continue this craft at home.
