Wax Carving Day

WaxCarving.jpg

Wax Carving is fun and experimental way of producing fine-detailed, and unusually shaped jewellery that is not easily achieved using conventional methods. During this one-day course Louisa will show a range of carving techniques and help you carve a basic ring design helping you to get you to grips with the tools and methods. She then hopes you will be eager to play around with carving some of your own designs before the end of the day, when all your pieces will be sent off for casting in silver.

On this one day course Louisa will show you how to use tiny silver or gold balls to decorate your jewellery. You will learn how to make your own granules and solder them into place using Louisa's own quick and easy methods.

 

You will learn how to build up a big cluster of granules on a ring, create little clusters all around a ring band in different areas, fill gaps and adorn the edges of a setting. The day will be technique focused, using pre-made silver samples (included in the course fee). You can then make these into finished pieces of jewellery after the course in your own time if you choose to. It's a great skill to know and a beautiful addition to your own designs.

Soldering Masterclass

Soldering.jpg

This course is aimed at jewellery students who already have some jewellery and silversmithing experience. Soldering is a key skill within the craft and one which students often say is the area they most fear or need most practice in. This course aims to explain the science behind solder, flux and preparing your metal. We will demonstrate several key soldering methods such as pallion soldering, sweat soldering, feed soldering and using a solder probe. After each demonstration students will have a go at the technique themselves, using pre-prepared pieces of copper. If you would like to brush up on your soldering skills, conquer your fears or have a better understanding of the techniques and science behind them, this course is for you.

Tutor: Olivia Lowe
£80 per person (includes copper samples)
