Join Eimear’s jewellery-making class and learn the ancient art of lost wax casting. Under her guidance, you will design your ring and then sculpt it using jeweller’s wax, which will be cast into sterling silver. No experience is required as with Eimear will guide you through the fundamentals of designing, sculpting and texturing your masterpiece using jeweller’s wax.
Classes are small, limited to only six participants, and each participant will have their own set of tools to use on the day.
At the end of the workshop, you will have a wax ‘master’ that will be sent to a professional caster to be cast in recycled sterling silver. Eimear will then hand finish your piece according to your specifications and post it back to you in a beautiful gift-wrapped box within 3/4 weeks max.
The workshop costs €125 per person, which includes all materials, tools, tuition, coffee/tea/snacks, casting your piece in recycled sterling silver, finishing, polishing, and return postage (including a beautiful jewellery box).
This is a wonderful opportunity to create a precious treasure that is entirely unique to you, whether you decide to keep it or gift it to a deserving loved one.
