Creating a wax model and seeing it become an artwork in metal is a thrilling process. In this workshop, we will learn the traditional wax carving techniques used to create truly beautiful and unique works of wearable art. The class will bring the student through the wax working process, how to sprue and invest your wax, the burnout, and finally the casting and finishing of your metal artwork. An emphasis on wax working skills will benefit experienced jewelers, while enabling those new to the field to start with a strong foundation.
