This course will give you the basics of how to work with wax, carving rings and objects. This technique is very useful for jewellers, sculptors and anyone that has an interest un using the lost wax technique. You will be able to ask questions and receive lots of great feedback from an experienced jeweller. Kim will also demonstrate how to make your own tools. This technique is very low cost, as all the tools you will need are waxes and files. The third day is optional: it allows the participants to go into a jeweller studio and cast their pieces that they've created over the 2 day course. You can attend just 1 day, 2 days, or all 3 days of the course.
Kim Goldsmith is a dynamic, energetic jeweller with vast knowledge and eagerness to share. Kim has been creating custom pieces in precious metal and stones for 25 years. She lives in Halifax and is a juried member of the Metal Arts Guild of Nova Scotia.
