Fluid designs, geometric forms and representational figures all translate into wonderful pieces of wearable sculpture in lost wax casting. Explore the process of taking your designs from paper, to wax sculpture, to finished jewelry. Start with a concept, experiment with different techniques of sculpting wax, cast the wax in bronze, sterling silver or gold, then finish the metal into beautiful pieces of jewelry.
Jewelry making by lost wax casting is a class appropriate for beginning as well as intermediate and advanced students. Beginning students will start with a guided project, while intermediate and advanced students will work on projects of their own design. All students will be given guidance from the instructor as needed. Wax working, casting and finishing techniques will be demonstrated in group settings and on an individual basis during the class.
At the start of the class a group order will be placed to order metal and supplies.
