Description

Introduction to Wax Working will teach students the ins and outs of using wax as a medium for creating jewelry. Students will learn both cold and hot processes as well as what to take into consideration when designing a piece. Students will gain an understanding of the casting process and preparing pieces for casting. Wax worked pieces will be sent off to be cast at a local facility. Once pieces are cast, the course will go over methods of finishing. Students will leave the course having created two pieces of finished jewelry.

LOCATION

The Steel Yard is located at 27 Sims Avenue, Providence RI 02909

WHAT TO WEAR

For all courses, students must wear a pair of close-toed shoes like sneakers or boots (no sandals, no flip-flops, no peep-toe pumps). Also, you should dress expecting to get a little dirty. Art is messy. In addition, students in metalworking courses must wear clothes made from either cotton or wool—synthetic fabrics like fleece and polyester are not safe near an open flame. Pants are required and long sleeves are recommended. Any clothing that has been frayed is not permitted. The studio is well stocked with heavy-duty welding jackets, but if you have your own, feel free to bring it.
