Jewelry attracts you?  Maybe you think it often lacks personality and you want something more than the machine look? Or maybe you want to shape your own creations? Or maybe you want to be able to restore jewelry later? All reasons to start these practically and theoretically oriented courses.

Jewellery drawing
(training duration:
1 school year)

 

Teacher:Luc Van den Broeck

 

Making jewelry is a creative profession. It is still the aim of every self-respecting goldsmith to make his creations as original and unique as possible. This is automatically accompanied by presenting your own ideas to customers. 

Nowadays it is more necessary than ever to manage working hours efficiently. Drawing a jewelery design indeed requires the necessary attention and time, but is not proportional to the time that would be lost if a design does not meet the needs of the buyer/customer, so that the goldsmith must make the requested adjustments, not to to say he has to completely redo his work.

Lost wax technique
(training duration: 1 school year)

 

Teacher:Erik Peersman

 

 

A wax model is part of the lost wax casting process. Instead of working directly in metal, the design is fabricated in wax. Wax has several advantages: the materials are cheaper and forgiving - if a correction needs to be made, just add more wax. Also some designs, sculptural pieces such as skulls, snakes, etc., are best made with wax which has the flexibility to shape any shape you can imagine. After the wax model is completed, it is covered with plaster. After this, the plaster is burned out or "lost". The void left by the molten wax is the mold for the molten metal in casting. Discover more about the lost wax technique and take this essential course.
