“It’s my job to meet each student at their level with the utmost respect and help them build their skills and inspire their creativity. I have no expectations of where they are,” she says. “I just want to help get them where they want to be . . . and beyond!”- Kate Wolf

Discussion and demos on how to make your pieces to minimize casting defects.
Students will explore:
- Surface textures
- Flame techniques
- Use Wolf Relief Wax to make raised decorative surface embellishments.
Educator, jeweler and tool maven Kate Wolf has three loves: carving wax, designing tools and teaching. One is meditative and intuitive, the second exhilarating. And teaching? Absolutely “divine.” That “student/teacher interaction and enthusiasm is inspiring,” she says, especially when she has a classroom full of different skill levels and reasons for embarking on wax-carving and jewelry-making. Kate has been carving wax and making jewelry for 35 years and teaching for more than 23 years. She teaches in workshops all over the U.S. and Canada and at her school in Portland, Maine.
