Have you always wanted to get together with your favorite girlfriends, listen to music, catch up stories, sip yummy beverages while crafting and cast your own ring? Well we are here to make this happen for you and your group girlfriends. This work shop is offered at our Studio in Oceanside.
We will show you how to create the rings in wax, and then cast them using the lost wax casting method.
In this fast moving and intensive 5-8 hr workshop, students will get hands on experience carving a wax model. Or you can choose from our selection of molds to create a unique creation in wax. You will learn how to use an electric wax pen, carve, file, saw and polish wax models. How to invest and cast your work. How to polish your finished castings will also be covered. This is a great opportunity to learn all you need to know to make jewelry using the lost wax casting process, from start to finish and enjoy the company of bestfriends.
For the first half of the workshop, you will learn how to design and carve a wax model. All specific hand tools for wax carving are provided. Once this wax model is completed, it is invested in a casting flask, and prepared for casting. We will provide a light lunch and yummy beverages.
For the second half of the workshop, after all flasks have been burned out in the kiln, all the wax models are individually centrifugally cast with the instructors help, in your choice of Sterling Silver or White Bronze. The newly cast models are cleaned, finished, and polished in preparation for you to take home.
Students will leave the workshop with a sterling original. The sterling, carving wax, and tools are available for purchase in the studio. All hand tools, casting, and mold making equipment are available in the studio for use by the participants.
