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.
Cancellation PolicyFull refund (less 5% processing fee) up to 2 weeks before the start date. Cancellation within two weeks will receive a studio credit redeemable for one year.
