I’ve been tutoring at Sew In The City since the summer of 2017 and I teach jewellery making via the lost wax casting method.
It enables complete beginners to come along and create a custom piece of jewellery in a precious metal, without the worry of making expensive mistakes. Attendees get hands-on with jeweller’s wax to make their model and I do the hot, dirty work (the casting) after the class ends!
Ticket prices include refreshments, tools, materials and the casting of one item in sold sterling silver. However, you can make as many models during the class as you like! If you’d like more than one casting, I can weigh your model for you and work out the additional cost.
Places are strictly limited to ensure that all attendees get one to one support throughout the class.
Unfortunately, it’s not possible to safely hold these classes and maintain the social distancing measures that are required due to the Covid-19 pandemic. I have cancelled my classes for the remainder of this year, and will review this decision alongside government advice in the next few months.
