Class Description:

Lost wax carving is a millennia old art form that will allow you to carve your pendant in wax and then we will cast in the metal of your choosing. In the beginning of class we will take time to sketch our design so please bring a sketchbook and a few ideas to work off of if you'd like. During this class we will be using mainly hand tools to remove wax and create our desired effect. On the table I will also have two hand drills for people to try and get comfortable with. Cabochons (dome stone with flat bottom) will also be available to be worked into your pieces for a small additional cost.

During class we will consult on what metal the finished piece will be in, an estimated cost and desired finish. Once your piece is fully finished you will receive email updates on its process and you'll be able to ask me questions in return if desired. 

The price for the class covers instruction, wax and my time to clean and finish your pieces to the desired effect. During class you will be given a casting cost for your choice of metal and any additional finishes you choose. In order for your wax to be cast the amount will be sent via venmo to the instructor. You will receive your piece back as a clean and tumbled casting unless otherwise agreed upon. 

Age Group: Adults and Teens when accompanied by an adult. 
No experience necessary.
