Learn lost wax casting, a technique that has been used to make jewelry for thousands of years. Design and create a wax model, then “invest” it (make a mold of the model). The wax will be “burnt out” in a kiln, creating a cavity to inject with molten silver or bronze. File and sand to bring to a finish and, voila, you have a unique piece of jewelry! Kate Dunagan teaches jewelry at Vashon High School and has been dabbling in jewelry fabrication and casting for 40 years.
No previous experience necessary, return lost wax casting students welcome.
