Workshops

  • Making Jewelry: An introduction to Wax Modeling – 2 day workshop Saturday & Sunday June 1st & 2nd 1:30-5:30 pm

Explore wax modeling as a method for creating a piece of metal jewelry. At the end of this two-day workshop you will select your best wax model design to be sent for casting in either Sterling Silver or Brass to later take home as your own special jewelry piece. One of the processes of designing jewelry is to carve the design first on wax before making the form. Wax is a very malleable and beautiful material to work with and allows the artist to make either simple or complex forms. Students will sculpt soft wax to produce organic shapes; carve the design on sheets of hard wax; solder different wax pieces together; and receive ongoing instruction. As tools and materials are introduced, students start simply, then add details and refine work for casting. I will do the final finishing (e.g. solder posts to earrings) to student specifications.

All the wax materials and tools will be provided.
