8 Weekly Sessions LOW-TECH LOST WAX CASTING

Thursdays beginning March 7, 2019 - ending May 9, 2019

6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

(Sessions may not be held on consecutive weeks due to other MAGG pre-scheduled workshops.)

This session will teach you techniques for carving wax by hand with tools you already have and with special tools on the Flex-Shaft.  We'll start by carving a ring and casting it using low-tech processes.  Once it's cast, you'll learn how to clean up and polish it so you can wear it home.  There will be time to do a second casting of your choice as well using the tips and tricks you'll learn in class.  It's a great way to recycle your silver scraps!
