Lost Wax Casting I

February 8 - 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

$120

This is a two session class where in the first session you learn how to carve a wax to create a piece of jewelry using wax files, a flex shaft and other carving materials. This class is taught by Linda Lewis and Kurt Schiller.

Kurt is a very accomplished fine jeweler and has been a master in his field for the many years he has worked in the jewelry industry. Even though Linda is primarily a fabricator, she has done much carving over the many years she has been making jewelry.

After you have carved your wax, Kurt will cast your piece during the week, and the second class you will cut, file, sand and polish your piece and set any stones you might want in your piece. If you have a stone you would like to set, please bring it to the first class. We have a limited collection of stones if you would like to purchase one to use.

Besides the class fee, there will be a materials & casting fee depending on how much silver you use. The class fee is due the first week and the materials & casting fee is due the second week after your piece is weighed.
