description
Hard wax carving techniques are one aspect of model making in jewelry design. Through demonstrations and hands-on experience, students explore techniques such as layout, carving hollow forms and mirror images, texturing, faux granulation, and flame finishing. Although models are sent out for completion, upon return, finishing techniques are explained. Prior use of basic jewelry hand tools is prerequisite.

The Art League Jewelry and Metal program covers various aspects of designing and creating art jewelry and small metal objects. Each class is suited for beginners, unless noted. The classrooms are equipped with an extensive assortment of tools and machines, personal tools and supplies are discussed during the first class. A $20 lab fee is payable to the instructor at the first class except for Enameling on Metal. Basic jewelry tool kits may be rented for home use for the duration of any jewelry class.
