What you'll learn in this wax carving class:

This class will explore a wide range of sculptural shapes, surface textures, and hollow forms.

Carving wax is a wonderful alternative to metalsmithing for creating jewelry.

Rich textural surfaces and fluid, curving shapes can be created in wax material that can then be cast into a variety of metals to create a finished product.

Wax carving techniques using both hand tools and the flex shaft will be introduced for carving small objects and jewelry – such as a charm or pendant, as well as ring shapes from different types of wax.

Basic knowledge of the casting process will be covered – during the course students will have the opportunity to have cast at least one piece in metal, and learn how to bring the cast piece to a desired finish.

They include a tour of the jewelry district and a complete list of trade references and supplier resources to provide the new student with a full introduction to the jewelry industry. Small class sizes are perfect for both absolute beginners or those looking to refresh their skills.

Note: After enrolling, you will receive  a detailed list of tools required for this class. On average, these cost about $60.

Attended: Ring Making Intensive

There were a lot of students in the class...it was 10:1 student teacher ratio!! I read that other students got to make more than 1 ring...I kinda wished I could make 2! The teacher was pretty cool though, very helpful and funny, but had to wait in a mini line to get his attention :(

Attended: Steel Fabrication

This was a great class! I am an absolute novice when it comes to jewelry design, but the teacher was very patient and clear in his explanations, and the other students were so enthusiastic about their projects. The space is a really good one to work in. I never felt crowded. They have plenty of tools & resources available to use, but you should bring your own files and saw. Overall I would recommend this class to both beginners and advanced jewelry makers who want to learn more about the specific properties of working with steel. Bryce was very knowledgable and loved to discuss his craft.


Attended: Bangle Bracelets Intensive

Great class with a very organized, knowledgeable, skillful, and patient teacher! I was especially impressed with how she taught soldering--which isn't an easy thing to teach. The fact that there were only five students allowed her to give each of us individual instruction and assistance. I am very happy with the bracelets I made, and I know what I need to do next to improve my next bracelets.


Attended: Wax Carving I

The instructor was so nice and really took the time to help everyone. I intend to sign up for the metal smithing class in the fall. I would recommend anyone to take a class there or just visit and see the showroom.
