Hosting a different kind of jewelry class is always a treat. Recently, we had Jena Hounshell in the studio, teaching a weekend workshop all about spruing your wax carvings and molding them too! It was a weekend chock full of vital skills. Jena walked us through what can be an intimidating process—one that can seem mysterious and complex—she lead the class through it step by step, and at the end, each student left with a couple of molds that they can use in their castings.
We asked students to tell us about their favorite skill that they learned:
This was a great class, even for those students who might not make their own molds in the future, learning the process was essential for them to understand the process. Fun was had by all and the process made for great discussions. Students left with tons of resources and their brains bursting with knowledge.
We plan to offer this class again in 2020. If you’d like to be the first to know when it is offered, sign up for the list! Folx on our list are the first to hear about new classes, workshops and get first crack at signing up.
