Carving and Casting

July 27-31, 2018

This course offers a chance to explore the ancient technique of lost wax casting on a jewelry scale. We will begin with an introduction to wax working, including additive and subtractive techniques. After completing wax models, participants will sprue, invest, and cast in bronze or sterling silver. Once the waxes have been transformed into metal, we will cover finishing methods to “clean up” surfaces and turn the castings into finished jewelry pieces. Participants with metalworking experience will learn skills they can bring back to the bench, but no previous experience is necessary for successful casting. Beginner and Beyond
