What's Included

Wax Carving Instructor: Travis Ogden Prerequisite: None Class Limit: 10 In this wonderful workshop, instructor Travis Ogden will guide students through the processes of creating custom wax carvings. Travis has been wax carving for over 25+ years and spent years as a goldsmith selling the finished cast pieces he created from his waxes. This workshop is designed to help students learn the art of carving in a removal of wax method. There are other methods of wax carving, but this is the most common style. With this workshop under their belt, students will be well prepared to take the Casting class and get more out of that workshop. If students are not taking the casting class, they can create waxes and have them cast at a local casting house. Travis has information for students on local casting businesses available to do the casting part. Covered in this workshop will be uses of different types of waxes available, wax tools and equipment, as well as carving techniques, and how to professionally finish the wax pieces for excellent casting results. Students will have the option to make either a ring or a pendant. These two articles are the basic forms for carving anything and everything you may wish to create from wax in the future. *For the ring: students will start with a tube of wax to carve, size, shape, add design elements and professional finishing techniques. *For the pendant: students can design their own pendant, fabricate it in the wax, and apply professional finishing techniques. Students will leave the workshop with a clear understanding and practice of the creative opportunities Wax Carving can provide every jewelry artist.
