This is a focussed course where you will get to make your own unique ring to keep for yourself or great for a gift for someone special.
For any skill level, no prior skills or knowledge needed.
Abby Seymour is renowned for her illustrative and distinct carved detailing applied in the form of metal used in her practice. Through the lost wax casting process Abby creates her own signature style; distinctive for markings which conjure references to ancient Egyptian relics and Art Deco geometry.
Designed for beginner to intermediate level, this workshop will guide you through the design process in lost wax casting through choosing the right tools, selecting and carving the right jewellers wax. Techniques of carving, filing and polishing will be used to give shape to one or a few unique rings.
There will be multiple demonstrations along the way and opportunity for individual tuition, specifically tailored to guide each student through the nuances of each design. You will also be given an invaluable hand book to reference at home along with a gridded design pad, wax to continue your designs, and of course your very own piece cast in silver or brass.
This course provides the perfect opportunity for you to apply your vision and style using the same techniques as Abby does in her practice.
