Filling The Cavity: Metal Casting Techniques For Jewelry and Small Objects

June 2, 2019 – June 8, 2019

Emily Cobb

Ever want to use fire, heat and molten metal to create 3D forms? During this workshop students discover how to carve cavities and build wax models to cast in metal. From cuttlebone casting to lost-wax casting, you can make rings, pendants, or other small objects. Participants curious about making dimensional metal objects, or who want to learn how to design cast jewelry, will benefit from the processes and techniques covered in this class. Metal finishes for cast objects are also explored. Open to all skill levels.
