In this back-to-back weekend workshop, students will learn safe mold-making techniques, hands-on wax casting approaches, and wax clean up and finishing. Students should bring in small objects with interesting shapes and/or textures to use with silicone putty molds. This can include found objects, toys, natural objects like shells…etc., the more the better! We will transform these objects into metal through the mold making and lost wax casting techniques. wax pendants and send out be cast into metal. In the 2nd weekend and once in metal, finishing techniques will be covered so students can walk away with a completed metal pendant.
Materials included. Open to all levels.
