‘Lost Wax’ Jewellery Making Workshop

With Rare Bear


Would you like to learn the ancient art of Lost Wax Carving? Come along and experience the oldest process of jewellery making with me.


Firstly, it’s important to have an open mind with what you want to create; maybe do a bit of designing and bring in your own ideas. However, we will start the workshop looking through inspirational content, then designing your ideas on paper.

From then, I will show you the different waxes and the techniques and tools you can use to produce the gorgeous piece you desire. The class will then involve moulding, sculpting or carving your wax, until you’re happy with your pieces. You can take your time, and play with the different waxes available until you feel comfortable with what you have made.

There will be tea, coffee and cake available for you to take breaks.

Once you feel happy with your work, I will send your pieces off to my trusted Hatton Gardens casters for your lost wax to be cast into your preferred metal. This can take up to 2 – 3 weeks but is absolutely worth the wait. Once your pieces are cast and sent back to me, I will do the final stages of finishing and polishing.

We can map out the workshop that caters to what you wish from it, but most importantly; you having a couple pieces of your own hand made jewels.

The perfect gift to yourself and others. This playful craft is perfect for anyone with an eye for handmade jewellery and exploring a beautiful historic ritual.

The session will run for approximately 2/3 hours, tea and cake will be provided. Price includes tutorial, wax and wax tools, casting fee and servicing (finishing and polishing).
