I will be teaching at Penland School of Crafts this coming summer. I hope you will join me! Here's the info:Waxing Poetic
August 24-30, 2014
This class will be an intensive introduction to the remarkable process of lost-wax casting. Well use soft waxes to create original models for jewelry and small objects and cast these objects in silver or bronze using a centrifugal machine. Along the way, well experiment with stonesetting in wax, bi-metal casting, and approaches to working that minimize our impact on the environment. Seeking inspiration in jewelrys rich history, well explore what it might mean to making today. To find out more, visit Penland School's website.
