Learn how to make your own jewelry!
In this creative sculpted method workshop, taught by Steven Hanna, you will learn how to make jewelry using the "Lost Wax Technique."
Lost wax carving is an organic, free-form method of custom jewelry making. Using molten wax drippings we carefully build a rough form, which is then sculpted with special carving tools to form a ring, pendant or any other forms of jewelry.
Your mini sculptures will then be sent to a professional foundry, and cast into silver in a specialized process where the wax melts away, thus the name: "Lost wax." Within two weeks, you will have your finished silver design back and you have now made your first piece of jewelry! We can do a little work in the finishing of the casting, however, the class is primarily working in wax. No soldering or setting is involved, although we do offer the services of our bench technician if the students so desire.
Beginners are welcome, no previous experience necessary. Play and experimentation are encouraged. More advanced students receive guidance on how to build a collection, develop a unique style, set prices, and market their jewelry. Most of Accents' resident designers have begun their careers in this class. Some have become recognized on a national level.
The workshop is kept small so that Steven can work with each individual person to bring out their own unique creativity and achieve their own personal goals. Class size is limited, so secure your spot today. A starter kit is included; just bring yourself & your imagination!
