Wednesday carving and casting class: beginners and advanced. 6-9pm for 8 weeks.

Tutor: Vaune Mason

This class is suitable for beginners and experienced students and covers carving in several areas.

Beginners (Level 1): Carve a simple ring in jeweller’s wax for casting into precious metals, from there learn to develop more complex forms so that you can create your own designs simply and easily. You will also learn cuttlefish casting, the simplest, most hands-on and quickest method of casting.

Level 2: Learn to combine cast elements with silver soldering techniques. Create a simple silver ring with a cast element included. You will also be introduced to carving in wood. You can learn to select beautiful recycled woods to shape the wood into simple forms or more complex delicate creations for use as pendants, earrings, or as part of a larger silver piece. Wood is one of the nicest materials to work, it is easy to source recycled wood, it is non-toxic, and can easily be worked in a variety of ways. With the price of silver rising, it is also a great alternative material!

Level 3 and above: As you gain experience in this class, we give you projects that increase your skill level in soldering as well as carving and casting so that you have the skills needed to make your more ambitious ideas!

Course fees include some basic materials and casting fees.
Your waxes will be sent away to a professional casting company to be cast in the metal of your choice.Your metal choice is additional, and can cost as little as $1 for bronze. Wax and wood provided, as well as burrs and safety equipment. Own Dremel or Foredom is a plus!
