Cake & Carve

Floral themed wax carving workshop for beginners - create a sterling silver cut flower using the lost wax casting process.

Carve a flower in wax, tuck in to homemade cake and enjoy a couple of hours of crafting.

Hosted by Ellie at the beautiful Hedge on Stichley Highstreet.



New Month - New Flower

The Process

In the workshop we will carve two flowers, see the first as a practice run, getting comfortable with how the wax and tools feel.

After you have created your wax flower in wax, it will be cast into silver in the Jewellery Quarter.

Choose a short, medium or long stem - which best suits your perfect pot. I solder your stem on and then add your chosen finish.

The after process takes 4 weeks, if collecting - your flowers will be left at the venue at the next workshop. Collect when convenient or have it posted to you.



You can book to attend by viewing the calendar of events above and selecting a workshop.

The workshops are currently held once a month. Three new dates are released as we approach the upcoming season.

If you are interested in a private workshop for up to ten people please email


The workshop is £65 a ticket.

Ticket price includes the cost of one silver casting. We make two flowers in the workshop, you can cast your second flower if you wish, at extra cost of £25.

It is possible to have your flower made in to a ring, necklace, or brooch. This is at extra charge of £15 to cover materials and making time.

Collection is free from The Hedge. Delivery is £6.85 via Royal Mail Special Delivery.

Homemade cake and refreshments are included.

The maximum attendees per workshop is ten people. The workshop will go ahead even if not fully booked. I know how disappointing it is when an event you're looking forward to is cancelled.



The workshops are currently held at The Hedge on Stirchley Highstreet, Birmingham.

It would be wonderful to grow this venture and branch out to other towns and cities. Please do get in touch if you think the workshop would be suitable for a space near you. I am always open to new collaborations and would love to hear from you.


After 10+ years in jewellery making - wax carving is a new medium I have found myself working with. Brought about by the arrival of Amber.

Embracing the limitations of home, it is a technique that I can work in from the sofa. Workshop time is currently quite limited so I have loved delving into the world of wax. It's allowed me to continue to create new forms and learn a new jewellery making skill.

I also love nothing more than forming new connections and getting people together so it makes a fantastic workshop theme.

I look forward to hopefully meeting you at a future workshop.



The flowers are created with sheet wax using the below processes:

Cutting - with a scalpel, to cut petals.

Melting - with a flame and carving tools, to shape the wax.

Forming - with your hands, to press, mould and roll.

Skill Level

Everyone is welcome.

The workshop is suitable for complete beginners.

No carving or jewellery making experience neccessary.

We will make the flowers one stage at a time following a demonstration and talk through.

I will be hovering nearby ready to help at any point to guide you through the whole process.

Extra Info


If you can't attend the workshop please give as much notice as possible. Recieve a full refund or date transfer up to one day before the workshop.


If you have long hair it is best to wear it tied back.

Wax carving isn’t particularly messy but probably best not to wear your glad rags - I have some aprons if you wish to wear one.


For those worried about seeing such tiny things - I have two magnifier lamps and one dashing headband magnifier, these are useful for detailed work.

If you usually wear glasses for reading or close up work then it is best to bring them with you.


Wax carving is quite fiddly and delicate so you may struggle with some stages if you have false nails.
