3 week course


Classes run on:

  • Monday evenings
    6:00pm - 8:30pm


Classes run provided minimum enrolment numbers are met.

This course is a 'hands on, give it a go' type of class. Using specialist jewellers wax, you scrape, file, drill, sand and shape your own unique carving. This will be cast using the lost wax casting process, and then finished, resulting in an individual piece of your own design. You will own a true 'one-off' as, once the wax has melted away, the mould is lost.


Please note that this course is for absolute beginners and therefore stone setting is not taught as this is a more specialised skill.

Tuition is provided by experienced tutors and professional jewellers in a supportive learning environment. No experience is necessary.

Whau Studios will provide jewellers wax, all tools and cups of tea. Whau Studios will organise the casting for you at your own cost (pieces vary in price depending on size and weight).
