Intro
During the workshop you will go through the whole process: from wax carving to casting with the sling or vacuum machine.
Dates:
July 8 - July 12, 2024
From 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Price: €450

This workshop allows you to make jewelry using the lost wax technique. You will work with wax and learn how to make a wax casting tree, and how to plaster the model and burn it out in the kiln. Finally, you will cast using the sling- or vacuum machine. 
Sling- and vacuum casting are two casting methods. Sling casting involves using a rotational or centrifugal force to distribute the molten metal evenly in the casting model. In vacuum casting, you use a vacuum pump to remove air from the casting model, reducing the chance of porosity or other unevenness in the casting.

During the workshop, you will go through the entire process: from wax carving to casting. Models will be cast in silver or brass.  

Practical information
  • Included: wax, rubbers, plaster, and brass.
  • Note! Silver is not included. If you want to cast in silver, you can bring your own silver.

By Whom?
Kathleen Frisson will lead the workshop. She is a jewelry designer and teacher at the d'Academie of Sint-Niklaas.
