Casting Techniques for Jewellery: 2 Day Course (Thu-Fri).

 Book Now

– On this 2 day course we introduce  a range of home-studio casting techniques for creating jewellery and other small accessories.

You will have the opportunity to experiment with cuttlefish, delft sand and  plywood mould making. Pewter, a low-melt metal, will  be used for casting  into the moulds, and we will also look at ways to incorporate other materials into the cast. You can also include materials like glass, wood, plastic or stone in your cast. We will also discuss the wider applications of studio casting for developing multiple casts using the lost wax process.

If you wish, once you have successfully made a cast in pewter you can also use silver. Ask for more advice if you would like to try to make your final piece in silver.

It is anticipated that you will produce a range of progressive test pieces that could form the basis of a charm necklace or bracelet.

Techniques include: Cuttlefish casting, delft sand casting, acrylic / ply method of casting, silicon mould making working with resistant materials to make prototypes for mould making.

More info will be provided at the time of booking your place.
