In this studio class, students will learn basic wax fabrication and texturing skills, participate in casting their own jewelry and finally turn their raw cast rings into polished finished pieces. All students will create multiple silver rings. Students will be given a list of recommended tools and materials to bring, but everything will be provided including up to 1 oz. of silver. The class will include demonstrations, structured skill-building activities, and creative exploration assignments. A basic overview of the entire lost wax casting process from the inception of an Idea to a polished silver ring will be experienced in this class. Intermediate and advanced classes will follow for interested students. More detailed information about the process and this class are available under the education tab at: silverbeehivestudio.com Instructor Stephan Mitman is a studio artist who has been casting unusual silver rings for over 35 years and teaching art for nearly as long.
