Please note this course is not for beginners.

In this  course, we go over the rules and theory of directly setting stones into wax before casting and we also add in all our tips and shortcuts that we have learnt along the way. 

This is an exciting course with lots and lots of practice that can just be fun or a breakthrough for many jewellers. 

We supply all the wax, models and a starter pack of nano manmade stones that you can buy in the class if you choose to keep them and cast. With that and lots of help the rest of your time is for supervised exploration.

All of our classes are taught as though you will be working from home at a kitchen table so everything you learn you will be able to repeat at home. With that in mind it is essential that you have some experience of wax carving carving and casting - we do not teach from beginners for this course.

This class is practice only, anything you choose to cast will be taken in by you in your own time and be finished at home or in your studio.

If that sounds appealing book in and come along and have some fun.

This course is taught by Eran Naylor of Eran Naylor Jewellery and her teaching style is to give as much help and guidance, individual and group as possible. We like you to be able to get value for money and encourage you to own your work and skills so that you can ahead in this industry. She teaches with a positive attitude and can help you succeed either as a hobbyist or starting a new business.

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.

This is my second course with Eran and I thoroughly enjoyed it as much as I did the first one. She is super thorough but also explains the reasons behind different things. I also really appreciate that we are given access to the online course so we can go back and see things as we practice at home. Highly recommend!

Absolutely loved this class and would highly recommend to anyone. Lots of hands on practice as well as theory to explain everything. We went over many different ways of setting gemstones into wax. Eran is such a great teacher with so much knowledge and handy tips!

This is the 3rd course I have done with Eran and highly recommend them! Through each class you are taught the skills and can go home with a piece for casting if you wish! Well planned & easy to follow!
