Daffodil Mothers Day Special Wax Carving Workshop | Stirchley
March's Cut Flower Wax Carving Workshop theme - the Daffodil.
We return to sculpting in soft sheet green wax after experimenting with solid blue for January's Allium workshop.
Six textured petals dance around a crinkled trumpet, home to three peeping sweet wire stems. They are wondering if Spring has arrived.
This is a fun flower to carve - we have texture, petal cutting, crinkle making and stem balling to look forward to. Not to mention it is quite simply a beautiful bloom.
I hope you can join us for this celebration of Daffodils for Mother's Day.
Sunday 24th March
Hosted by Ellie - on my dining table in Stirchley.
Hot drinks & homemade cake
Ticket includes one brass casting
After carving your wax sculpture, it will be cast into your choice of brass or silver in the Jewellery Quarter.
The after process takes approximately 4 weeks. Collect your flower from the scrumptious Caneat on Stirchley Highstreet or have it posted to you.
Every workshop will see a different theme, allowing you to create your very own hand carved cut flower collection to scatter amongst your pots.
Silver casting - £20
Additional flowers - £35 in brass / £45 in silver
- Royal Mail Special Delivery - £6.85

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.
