This workshop is designed to help students learn the art of carving in a removal of wax method. There are other methods of wax carving, but this is the most common style. This workshop prepares students to take the Casting class and get more out of that course. If students are not taking the casting class, they can create waxes and have them cast with a local casting business..
Covered in this workshop will be uses of different types of waxes available, wax tools and equipment, as well as carving techniques, and how to professionally finish the wax pieces for excellent casting results.
Students will have the option to make either a ring or a pendant. These two articles are the basic forms for carving anything and everything you may wish to create from wax in the future.
