Question from Joshua W.
I would like to cast several custom family signet rings. I am creating a stl file to 3d print the rings to use in lost wax. Would I be able to cast these rings, or are the projects standard for all of the students.

Hi Joshua! Rings are more of a jewelry than a sculpture project, So the instructor suggests that you look for a good jewelry lab. Hope this helps!
Question from Joe S.

Hello there, Joe! The class is currently for All Levels, hence you can book this class if you'd like. If students do not have a specific project, the school can give the students several class assignments to learn the process. Hope this helps!

It does. Thank you.
