Wax Carving Week Spring 2019 with Kate Wolf

Monday - Friday, February 11-15, 10-6p

Come work alongside the "female MacGyver", this workshop covers so many techniques folks often take it two or more times. Wax is an amazing material and Kate Wolf is the woman with all the tools and tricks!

Learn how to rapidly and accurately remove excess material using the flex shaft for affordable lathe and milling processes. We will be working with Wolf Milling Wax™. There will be live, highly magnified demos of many wax techniques and the proper use of all of the Wolf Tools and Wolf Waxes that Kate has invented.

In this hands-on workshop, explore innovative approaches to wax carving with an emphasis on encouraging confidence and creativity.

Students will explore:

  • -Layout and transforming scribbles into resolved designs
  • -Carving rings, bezels and partial bezels for cabochons and faceted stones
  • -Contour fit shadow bands
  • -Turn the flex shaft into a lathe to make bezels and rings
  • -Demo shadow band
  • -Flame techniques
  • -Textures and faux granulation
  • -Pierced out work
  • -Hollowing, finishing, repairing, toolmaking
  • ...And so much more!
  • Expect to finish a couple of projects, and leave with a few pieces in process. This course focuses on wax carving techniques and no casting will take place to leave plenty of time for you to absorb all the tricks and troubleshoot alongside Kate. 

Note: Video recording is not permitted during this workshop. Please be on time or early as Kate starts demo's promptly at 10 am and trust me you dont want to miss a single demo! 

We highly recommend that students take Casting 101 before taking this workshop to gain an understanding of wax and casting. This will help make the most of your week with Kate!
