Join us on Roncesvalles during the Polish Festival for music, delicious food, and workshops here at Jewel Envy!
We will have a free wax carving workshop just out front of the store and we once again invite you to come and try your hand at jewellery making. The project takes about 1 hour to complete and you can sign up in advance, on the day of, or just show up. We will teach you how to carve a ring or pendant using wax. The wax is free and yours to take away, but unfortunately as it is only wax it will not withstand longterm wear. If you want your design to last we suggest turning it into a finshed metal piece of jewellery and we have two great specials being offered onl during the Polish Festival!
1. For $35 plus HST we will cast your ring in bronze and finish it for you to pick up the next weekend.
2. For $95 plus HST (plus the cost of sterling silver) we will cast your ring during the week and then you can come back the next weekend for a half day course and learn to finish it yourself.
In addition to attending our workshop we invite you to come and see the current exhibition on display called Hybrid. There will be an interactive element so be sure to step inside the shop after your workshop to participate!2015-09-19
