Learn all the skills you need to get started with a creative jewellery practice of your own in this silversmithing Melbourne workshop at Guild of Objects!

Over the course of four weeks, you will learn a variety of techniques and methods used by jewellers to create two rings and a pendant.

Course outline:

Week one (September 2nd) - Introduction to Lost Wax Casting:
Learn how to create your own silver ring using the lost wax casting process. You will be taught how to craft a unique piece of jewellery and how the ancient process of lost wax casting works to transform a wax model into a piece of jewellery. This class will empower you with the skills and knowledge to start your home jewellery practice and creative journey.

Week two (September 9th) - Carve a Classic Domed Ring From Wax:
Learn the art of reductive wax carving used by jewellers and artisans to create jewellery for millennia. This class will teach you some advanced techniques to further your practice in lost wax casting and jewellery making. The dome-shaped ring is a classic piece of jewellery and a beautiful foundation for any jewellers collection, learn how to carve your own and finish your wax sculpture for casting.

Week three (September 16th) - Make a Gem Embellished Pendant:
In this class, you will make a gem embellished pendant that will take your jewellery practice to the next level. You will learn how to set precious gems into their wax models to be cast into place like magic.

Week four (September 30th) - Finish Your Jewellery like a Pro at Home:
Learn how to get your cast jewellery looking like it was made by a professional using basic tools and some equipment you can even find at the supermarket. In this class, you will learn silver filing and polishing techniques as well as ways to make your jewellery stand out by adding patina and texture.
