Take your wax carving skills to the next level with this incredible course to make your own silver locket out of wax.
This is a perfect follow on course for those who have taken our Wax Carving 1, 2 or 3 classes and are looking for a challenge.
Throughout the day you will:
Work on your swing locket design and mark it out on your wax block
Use a combination of motor and hand tools to carve out the wax and create two matching parts.
Refine your finish and if there is time and you have the skills you may choose to add in extra design features or stone settings.
This is a swing locket so does not include a hinge but if you have hinge making skills you may wish to add this into the design after casting. You can learn about hinge making in our cold connections class.
By the end of the day, you will have the knowledge and experience to make your own wax swing lockets from home. Depending on your previous experience and speed of working you may or may not have completed your locket and will be able to get it cast into a metal of your choice and complete any final sanding at home with ease.
This is an intermediate to advanced level class suitable for students who are confident in basic wax carving and looking to develop their skills in 3D shapes and more complex designs.
As with all of our classes, all materials are included in the cost of the class as well as plenty of tea,coffee and luxury biscuits! The classes are all run by expert tutors with years of professional experience who are friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. The size of the classes is kept small to allow plenty of one-on-one attention and the maximum number of students for this class is 8.
We take an hour break for lunch and there are plenty of local shops to get food from, or you can always bring a packed lunch to eat in the studio. If you have any questions regarding this or other courses please don't hesitate to get in touch.
