Jewellery Casting at Northcity4

homepagelogo2Jewellery Casting is creative and fun and the results are virtually immediate. In our Jewellery Casting course we teach you very simple skills to carve models in wax which then get transformed into jewellery by the ancient art of lost wax casting – EASY!

Anyone can do this entry level course and produce a range of silver jewellery in five weeks. Included in the course is the opportunity to recycle your unwanted silver jewellery and melt and pour metal into your own carved cuttlefish mold.

Click the two images below to see two short movies of the cuttlefish casting process.

You have until this Friday 22/1 to take advantage of our EARLY BIRD price of $400 for the 5 week course starting Saturday 6th February 10am – 1pm

Copyright Agency Cultural Fund Grants

Applications close 26 February 2016
 The Copyright Agency Board endeavours to support a mix of writing, publishing and visual arts projects from around Australia.

When considering applications to the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund, the Cultural Fund Committee gives priority to those that support innovation in the Australian creative industries to develop local and foreign markets for Australian works and to projects that are not supported by government funding bodies.

Current areas of focus for the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund include projects that will:

  • provide cultural and educational institutions support to give individual artists, authors and publishers opportunities to develop their professional skills and develop new works;
  • place artists, authors and publishers in educational settings and build awareness of their work in this sector;
  • underpin export market development of Australian publishing and visual arts; and
  • provide Australian content with a profile in the increasingly globalised online environment so that Australians can compete effectively on the domestic and international marketplace for creative works.

Cultural fund allocations are made at the discretion of Copyright Agency’s Board, on the recommendation of the Board’s Cultural Fund Committee.

The Cultural Fund does not typically support the following:

  • living expenses
  • business overhead costs
  • capital works
  • general administrative costs
  • book launches;
  • exhibition openings;
  • publishers to publish/market books;
  • production costs for theatre, film and other performances;
  • digitisation of back issues/ catalogues of works;
  • creation or maintenance of a website for a publishing house, author or artist; and development of apps for devices.
Who Can Apply

If you have a project that meets the Cultural Fund’s guidelines, you may apply online to an advertised round of the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund. The application process is run on the Smartygrants platform on behalf of Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund. The Cultural Fund Committee assesses applications and makes recommendations to the Copyright Agency Board. The Board reviews the Cultural Fund Committee recommendations and makes Cultural Fund allocations.

Applicants to the Copyright Agency Individuals Career Fund must be Australian citizens or permanent residents.

In developing your application, you can contact Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund Manager, Zoë Rodriguez, by email: or phone +612 9394 7600.
