"Do you have a jewelry design you have always wanted to create but didn‘t know how to do it? It can be done in wax. This course will introduce traditional and modern wax carving techniques. All levels are welcome. Students will explore manipulating the different types of wax and their properties. Demonstrations will teach students how to carve 3D sculptural art forms ranging in scale from jewelry pieces such as earrings or bracelet links to small sculptures for belt buckles or paperweights. Wax allows you the freedom to carve beautiful detailed jewelry pieces that could never be fabricated in metal. Students will create their own original smooth or textured wax model which will then be cast in gold, sterling silver or brass by a commercial caster in NYC. We will also finish their castings in class. Students should come with a design or idea to start with. Supplies should be brought to the first class. Call for supply list.
