Lost wax casting, also known as “investment casting,” is a 6,000 year old process by which a single metal object is cast from a wax model.  In this introductory class you will learn the art of wax carving, and expand your creative horizons. You will be able to choose from a few options of items to make including; a pendant, a bangle, or a simple ring. Once you’ve sculpted your wax I will cast it in your preferred metal of choice - brass, sterling silver, or 14k gold - and will ship the finished piece back to you in approx. eight weeks following the workshop.

Workshop covers 4ish grams of brass. There will be an additional metals charge for your casting depending on how much metal you use, or if you would like to cast your work in sterling silver or solid gold. 

You may also purchase your wax carving kit for an additional $85 with the option to send in an additional 3 waxes from home. You will be responsible for the cost of metal and casting from my professional caster at that time.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have further questions! Looking forward to romping around in the mountains with you and making art together!

Hand building is the earliest forming method in ceramics. This technique involves creating forms without the use of a pottery wheel. In this workshop you will create a functional drinking vessel with just your two hands, a slab of clay, and a few simple tools!  At the end of the workshop you will be able to pick out your preferred glaze color(s) from a collection of samples. Jaclyn will handle the glazing and firing, and will ship your art to you approx two weeks after the workshop.
