Lost Wax Casting with Courtney Gray, Saturday + Sunday, September 2-3, 10-6pm

Work alongside expert jewelry artist and casting technician Courtney Gray. Together you’ll explore this ancient technique of the jewelry trade.

Saturday students will spend the day in the studio carving a simplistic three dimensional design for a pendant in wax. Discuss the significance of the weight and size of the wax when carving and how it will affect the casting process. At the end of the day Courtney will demonstrate how to sprue and invest the waxes and discuss the casting process. Sunday you cast! Each student will man the large torch as they melt and sling the molten metal for the centrifugal casting experience. Cast the pendants in bronze, sterling silver or Argentium. Finish out the pieces- clip, de-bur and polish your cast pendants for a beautiful, one of a kind piece, made by you!


Casting 101 with Ryan Harmon, Monday + Wednesday, October 9 - November 1, 10-2p

This beginner series will discuss the basics of casting and allow students to cast with both centrifugal and vacuum machines. Students will begin right away with carving their own designs for a freeform object, and will quickly move into casting in the second week. By the end of class, students will have two completed cast pieces with  an option to do a third if time permits. 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 organic elements to their work or those who wish to engage in simple production.
