These workshops are private classes run by artisan jeweller & maker, Anthony O’Connor.
1-3 students per class, to ensure small and productive sessions.
You can also request one-on-one tutelage, for undivided attention to your jewellery project.
In the first 4-hour session, students will have the opportunity to experiment with different types of wax, and carve one or two wax rings that will be cast by a commercial caster.
In the following 2-hour session, students will refine their piece with final polishing and finishing techniques.
After this workshop you will be equipped with the skills to continue wax casting from home. It doesn’t require expensive tools and you can also carve brooches, earrings and pendants.
Written notes will be provided for your own pursuits and making, including instructions, suppliers list and tools list.
The casting fee is an additional cost and will depend on the weight of your piece, and whether you want it cast in sterling silver, brass or bronze (average cost $40-$60).
Daytime, evening and weekend classes are available. Contact Anthony to schedule your dates and times.
You can take part in small classes of 2-3, or one-on-one if you prefer, giving all students extra attention.
Flexible sessions are not a problem. If you already have a level of experience and just need access to tools and perhaps some technical guidance, contact Anthony to discuss your project and requirements.
