Lost wax casting is an integral part of metalwork and jewelry making. Learn how to utilize the processes for this technique in your own work and the basics of production in jewelry. This beginner series will cover all aspects of casting and allow students to cast with both centrifugal and vacuum machines.
Students will begin right away with carving a signet ring, a standard across many casting curricula. From there students will learn how to carve a matched pair in wax and will experience casting with a vacuum casting machine. For the final projects students will carve a free form object of their choice and cast with the machine of their choice.The second week will also integrate fabrication techniques with the cast pieces including soldering on bails, adding chains, and embellishments. Students will leave this class with a comprehensive understanding of the basics of lost-wax casting and finishing. This series is perfect for those wanting to add more 3-Dimensional design elements to their work or those who wish to engage in simple production.
Casting grain is not included in tuition. Students may use sterling silver scrap with NO SOLDER if preferred.
