    Registration is now open for the online wax carving workshop that I'll be teaching at Pocosin Arts on May 7th & 14th from 3:00-5:00 pm ET. Go to pocosinarts.org/zoom-workshops-metals to register!

    This workshop focuses on wax carving techniques for jewelry and objects. We will cover the applications for various carving tools and burrs, the optimal type of wax to use for a particular project, and how to easily repair any mistakes made during the carving process. Through working with wax blocks and sheets, we’ll be able to create a range of organic or geometric objects. Participants will also learn to make a two-part rubber mold of their models to easily produce wax multiples. Demonstrations will include creating different surface textures, carving a ring to be set with a stone, and how to approach spruing a piece in preparation for casting. I hope you can join me!

    There are still some spots open for the two-part virtual workshop "Electroforming and Enameling" that I'll be teaching at Pocosin Arts. The course will be held on February 12 & 19, 2022 from 1:00 - 4:00 pm ET. Go to pocosinarts.org/zoom-workshops-metals to register!

    This workshop covers enameling electroformed objects. We will start with carving a wax model. Participants will learn to make a two-part rubber mold of their models to easily produce wax multiples. Mold making is also a great way to electroform an organic or found object without risk of contaminating the electroforming solution or damaging the original object in the bath. Demonstrations will cover painting the wax piece with a conductive copper paint to prep it for plating and removing wax from the electroformed piece, so you are left with a hollow copper object. We’ll focus on tips for enameling on three dimensional surfaces and using enamel to layer color and create different surface textures.

    I'm really excited for this course and I hope you can join me!
