“I absolutely loved this course! Kate’s teaching style is inspiring and empowering. I truly appreciate her patience and her willingness to share her tricks with us.” – Maggie, Wax Carving Week with Kate Wolf Fall 2018
Prerequisite: Beginner, all levels welcome
Wax is an amazing material and Kate Wolf is the woman with all the tools and tricks!
In this hands-on workshop, explore innovative approaches to wax carving with an emphasis on encouraging confidence and creativity. We will explore:
- Transforming scribbles into resolved designs
- Carving rings, bezels and partial bezels for cabochons and faceted stones
- Contour fit shadow bands
- Turn flex shaft into a lathe to make bezels and rings
- Demo shadow band
- Flame techniques
- Faux granulation
- Pierced out work
- Hollowing, finishing, repairing, tool making
- …And so much more!
Learn how to rapidly and accurately remove excess material using the flex shaft for affordable lathe and milling processes. We will be working with Wolf Milling Wax™. There will be live, highly magnified demos of many wax techniques and the proper use of all of the Wolf Tools and Wolf Waxes that Kate has invented.
Come work alongside the “female MacGyver”, this workshop covers so many techniques folks often take it two or more times. Expect to finish a couple of projects, and leave with a few pieces in process. This course focuses on wax carving techniques and no casting will take place to leave plenty of time for you to absorb all the tricks and troubleshoot alongside Kate.
Note: Video recording is not permitted during this workshop. Please be on time or early as Kate starts demo’s promptly at 10 am and trust me you don’t want to miss a single demo!
We highly recommend that students take Lost Wax Casting before taking this workshop to gain an understanding of wax and casting. This will help make the most of your week with Kate!
