SATURDAY 10TH FEBRUARY 2024
Join Cornwall-based jewellery maker Elle George and learn the ancient art of Lost Wax process a magical slow form of jewellery making.
The workshop will begin with looking through inspirational content, then designing your ideas on paper. You may have an idea already in mind, and advise you to bring any items that inspire you, or you want to use as reference.
Then you will shown the different waxes, and the techniques and tools you can use to produce the gorgeous piece you desire. This is when the fun begins and you can begin to model your piece, either through carving, or sculpting, whichever wax feels right for you to work with.
Elle will send your pieces off to my trusted Hatton Gardens casters for your lost wax to be cast into your preferred metal; bronze or brass.
This can take up to 2 - 3 weeks but is absolutely worth the wait.
Once your pieces are cast and sent back to Elle’s studio. She will do the final stages of finishing and polishing, and send them back to you.
We can map out the workshop that caters to what you wish from it, but most importantly; you having a piece or 2 of your own hand made jewels.
The session will run for approximately 2/3 hours, tea and cake will be provided.
