What’s it all about?
In this class you will learn the technique of “Lost wax casting” by using one out of a few different types of wax and learning how they work with small natural objects (i.e Gum nuts) to create your own sterling silver jewellery through a 2-part lesson. You can make pendants, rings, earrings out of lovely nature.
What will we cover?
Students are encouraged to bring their own selection of DRIED plants and seed pods for experimentation. Items that are small and hard are good, twigs, gum-nuts and seed pods are good to experiment and play with in the class. Make sure that items smaller than 1 cm in size.
Who will be teaching?
Jenny is a gift shop owner who has been creating her own pieces of jewellery for the past 5-odd years with paper being one of her favourite mediums to work with. Apart from jewellery making, she also has a background in interior design, merchandising and origami.
