Make rings, pendants, brooches or small sculptures in wax, then use the wax model to create a finished cast piece in silver or bronze. This 5 week class introduces multiple ways of wax-working including: additive, subtractive, filing, using hot tools and a small alcohol torch. Several finishing techniques will be demonstrated.
In this introductory 5 week class, students learn the basics of small-scale metal casting to create their own wearable works of art!
