LOST-WAX JEWELLERY WORKSHOP
UNIQUE VENICE ARTISAN EXPERIENCE
Private One-to-One Jewellery Crafting Lessons in the heart of Venice.
Lost-wax is an ancient technique which consists in creating a wax object to be inserted into a mould. The wax then is melted leaving the space to cast the metal and reproduce the object.
While creating the jewel the wax remains malleable, so that it can be shaped, the grooves can be deepened, the interlacing can be created and actual miniature sculptures rich in details can be made.
Students will get familiar with this technique and learn how to design a jewel from scratch.
