Saturday 27th November 10-5pm
Workshop 925 based at The Mayford Centre, just outside of Woking and very close to Guildford.
Unit F9 The Mayford Centre,
What does the day involve?
This class is designed as the second part of the ‘Wax carved Solitaire band’ day class but can also be taken as a standalone class.
On the day we take the silver castings made on day one in wax and learn to set the stones they are designed for into them. This will include learning how to clean up the casting ready for setting and learning the setting techniques used to set stones in the rub-over style.
If the class is taken as the second part of the two day course you will be able to set the stone into a ring you designed and manufactured in wax and then got cast, allowing for a complete experience of the process from design, to wax carving, to casting, to setting and finishing but if you wish to just focus on the stone setting aspect of this course, this class can be taken as a standalone day and we will provide stones and ring blanks for you to work on.
Please do not book if you do not agree with our Coronavirus procedures.
Some basic jewellery making experience would be an advantage but not a requirement
What is included?
Materials and tools are included, don’t forget to bring your stone along if you completed part one of this course!
What to bring:
For safety reasons, during each class, you are required to wear appropriate footwear, we request that no open toed shoes are worn within Workshop 925. Long hair should also be tied back when working with the equipment. You may also wish to bring a notebook. We have handouts for many demonstrations, but there are always many tips and tricks given verbally by the tutor, which some might like to keep note of. Please bring any PPE, snacks and drinks to each session. We regret we can’t offer tea and coffee at the moment due to Coronavirus.
