Experience the magic of lost wax casting! This workshop starts from carving or modeling wax, prepping the wax model for casting, encasing it in a plaster substance called investment, and burning out the wax in a kiln overnight. The following day we will reconvene to melt our metal, pour it into the mold and, voila! What was wax is now metal! The rest of the workshop will be for cleaning your castings, putting on findings, and polishing.

If you have previous knowledge in wax carving you may start making your wax model ahead of time and bring it to the class.

The amount of metal needed for casting varies depending on the volume of the wax model. The metal for casting will be measured out and sold to students during the second day of class. Or bring your own sterling silver or bronze casting grain. Contact Hailey at hangione@worcester.edu with any questions.
