About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this class is over. The last meeting was Wednesday, June 8, 2022.

Casting molten metal is one of the oldest metal techniques dating back thousands of years. Students will learn how to work both hard and soft wax. These wax objects will be cast in sterling silver incorporating the lost wax casting technique. This class will cover calculating wax weights, spruing of waxes, safety issues and finishing. Students do not need prior metal experience but those that have taken a jewelry class will be able to use those skills in the finishing part of this technique.
Cuttlefish casting will be offered.
Be prepared for a fun and interesting time learning this essential and ancient metal art!
Mats included.
This is an eight week class.
