1 Day Class: Wax Carving with Joel McFadden June 21, 2023

June 21 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Description: .
If you are accustomed to working in this additive fashion, the subtractive process of carving wax may be daunting to you at first. It challenges you to find a form, such as a ring, that is trapped in a block of wax. You must get an image of the piece in your mind’s eye, and then remove excess material until you have created that image. Sound tricky? Well, it doesn’t have to be.

Wax is a fantastic material for designing and creating Jewelry.

In this class, we will learn basic wax carving, and create a bezel or Gypsy set ring and a pair of earrings. You will also learn how to make your tools and get your wax models cast.With these basic techniques, a few tools and a flex shaft you will be ready to start sculpting models for every purpose.

Instructor:  Joel McFadden

Tuition: $250.00 (Includes use of all tools and materials used in the class)
