May 20 - 21 WAX WORKING FOR CASTING
Instructor: William Greenwood
Lost wax casting dates back to the bronze age and is still used today, although there have been many advances since then. This class will focus on the wax aspect of the process. Learn how to carve, file, melt and manipulate to create designs for rings, pendants, pins and earrings. The wax can be cast by the instructor into the metal of your choice including sterling, yellow gold or brass at his own facility for an additional fee to cover the cost of the metal. Once the castings are complete they can be cleaned up using files, sandpaper and polishing techniques either on your own or in another class. Casting is an excellent way to explore jewelry making without investing a lot of time or expensive metals in the process.
Skill Level: No experience necessary.
