Intensive Wax Jewellery Course
This intensive was course is for students who have previously completed our beginners wax course or can show a basic competency level is using wax as a casting method to create jewellery.
The course will be quite intensive and spans over 8 weeks as you need to practice and master techniques and sometimes multiple techniques on one piece. We will be packing the work in at every session and there will often be work to be completed at home. There is no casting on this course- all of the work is done in wax. You may cast your pieces later if you choose to.
In this course we will cover and explore:
* Carving and tools
* Following a wax template
* Work planning and measuring
* Carving for stones
* Direct stone setting into wax
* Creating bezels and rings- organic methods
* Short cuts and finish off methods
You will need to bring an apron and hair tie if necessary- all other equipment and wax is provided. Please note that you will need to pay for any of your own castings.
Due to the time needed for this course it will only be run once a year. If you wish to book and secure a place, you can book online here, use the afterpay facility to spread the amount over four payments or e mail us to use our layby facility on our Studio Kingfisher website product drop down menu.

We are a collective of designers and makers curated by Eran Naylor (owner and designer) creating and bringing to you beautiful and organic jewellery, bags and home wares. Our house label of jewellery and bags are made here in our studio. Our inspirations for our collections come from designs and patterns from the old Mesopotamian regions, India and South America, transferring the beauty of older times to bold, classic pieces that can be worn or used with ease today.
We also run a school of craft, where we invite exciting and innovative teachers to come in and teach classes so that you can learn new skills from them. These are run in one of our two beautiful spaces in and around our shop and studio.
