See lost wax casting as the professionals do in jewellery manufacturing.

Lost wax casting has been around for centuries and have been used since the early days to cast items such as weapons, sculptures and jewellery out of brass. It involves first, sculpting of a wax model, applying the right sprues, pouring a investment over the wax model, burning out the wax (hence the term lost wax casting), then pouring in molten metal into the cavity left by the evacuated wax.

Come join us and learn this lost art firsthand!Duration: 2-3hrsCost Fee :$140

Workshop Workflow:

-Students get to come out with their own design of ring, pendant or trinket and have them hand-carved out of a block of wax

Choose between:

1.Cast in Pewter (Get to bring piece homw immdediately after class)-Make a silicon mould out of carved wax, leave it aside to cure

-Practice the proffesional way of cutting moulds

-Get to melt and pour pewter (low melting point metal) in your very own moud made earlier

-Cutting off sprues and polishing the piece to perfection.

(please take note that this method is reserved for simpler patterns as the silicon mould takes at least 30mins to cure, giving lesser time for wax carving)
