Title:   Lost Wax Casting      

Course Number:      MTL 003601
Campus: Boston-Fenway   
Room: TBA

Course Description:

Are you interested in making multiples, using large torches, and metal? Well, this course is for you! Lost wax casting is an ancient form of creating a small sculptural object in wax, making a mold of it and then melting that away and shooting molten metal into the void. It's exciting, it's dramatic, and it's a way to make a large number of jewelry components or small sculptures very quickly. These small components can then be linked together to create beautiful wearable pieces of art. In this course you will learn to carve wax, make molds, and cast metal.
-This course has a materials fee of $50
-Class includes a scheduled one-hour break
