Lost wax cast Silver Ring (or Pendant)
February 15 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm£90
This is a new fabulous workshop at the Blacksmith Shop Crafts. Joy Smith from Cinebling LTD is coming to tutor how to make a silver ring using a piece of wax.
However, we do not wear the wax pieces, rather it is a way to carve and shape your design in an easy-to-work-with material, that then is taken to a caster (Joy!) and converted into the metal of your choice through a process called lost-wax-casting.
The wax piece is essentially a model or we call it a ‘master’. That master is used to create a mould, then at high temperatures the wax is removed from the mould and molten metal poured into its place to create your silver piece.
You will be able to have your ring within few weeks from the workshop.
We will allow a full day for you to perfect your design but if you would like to have something immediate to take home with you on the day, you could make a piece of jewellery using silver wire. There would be an additional cost of £15 for the materials.
This workshop is with home cooked lunch.
