RING MAKING WORKSHOP @ STUDIO 23B

 Join artisan jewelers Aurora and Amy in a hands-on wax-carving and sand-casting workshop in our Northern Beaches studio. 

This is a 5 hour workshop where you will be guided through the steps to design and create your own sterling silver ring using a combination of traditional silversmith techniques, including wax-carving and sand-casting. This workshop is unique in it's own kind, allowing the students to go through both the design and the casting process in a single day. 
 

THE WORKSHOP IS BROKEN DOWN INTO THREE SECTIONS

1. Designing and carving your mould in the form of a wax ring
2. Sand-casting your wax mould into metal
3. Cleaning and polishing your casting to a finished product, of which you will take home with you. 

 

WHAT'S INCLUDED

20 grams of recycled 925 sterling silver to create your ring of a finished product value of up to $200

Refreshments provided

A supportive and fun environment where you will gain insight into the ancient craft of jewellery making

Any additional silver, if required, will be charged at $1.50 per gram and payable on the day. 

 

 

ABOUT YOUR TUTORS

 

Aurora, originally from Canada, is mostly self-taught but also apprenticed under Denise + Holly Ryan where she gained experience in the gold-smithing world. Aurora's interest in sustainability in her craft led her to sand-casting, the technique in what she uses to create her pieces for DAWN & DAISY. She will be demonstrating the sand-casting component of the workshop.

Amy Gopperth, originally from NZ, studied Fine Art with a metals + silversmithing major in Melbourne. She currently runs her jewellery label A M Y G O L D with which she predominantly works in the lost-wax casting method. Amy will be taking you through the wax carving component of the workshop.
