Cut Flower Wax Carving Workshop @ Loam
October's Cut Flower Wax Carving Workshop - the beautiful Poppy Seed Head.
A perfectly-imperfect textured dome flaring from the stem, and the umbrella of stems launching from it's top. There are so many wonderful elements for us to experiment with carving.
Banish the emails and to do lists - tuck in to homemade cake and enjoy a morning of carving your own cut forever flower.
Saturday 28th October
Hosted by Ellie at The Loft at Loam, located in the Maws Craft Centre in Ironbridge.
Hot & cold drinks are provided as well as a slice of homemade cake.

The after process takes approximately 4 weeks. Collect your flower from the venue when complete or have it posted to you.
Every month will see a different theme, allowing you to create your very own hand carved cut flower bouquet to scatter amongst your vases and pots.
Silver casting - £20
Additional flowers - £35 in brass / £45 in silver
Royal Mail Special Delivery - £6.85
Silver ring shank - £20

Please let me know if you have any dietary requirements or allergies prior to the workshop so I can adjust the bake to suit.
Carved By You - Finished By Me
After you have carved your flower in wax, it is cast into your choice of brass or silver in the Jewellery Quarter.
I will then add a short, medium or long stem to make it ornamental or turn it in to a brooch, ring, or pendant.
