Lost Wax Casting Class
To be Offered at UW-Eau Claire

 MAILED:  July 30, 2004

EAU CLAIRE - University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Continuing Education/UW-Extension will offer a class in the fundamentals of lost wax casting. The class is designed for adults; no previous jewelry design or metalsmithing background is necessary. Classes will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, Sept. 28 through Nov. 16, in Room 102 of the Haas Fine Arts Center on the UW-Eau Claire campus.

Instructor Jolee Mickesh, a practicing goldsmith artist, has taught Lost Wax Casting-Jewelry Design at UW-Eau Claire for six semesters. Participants complete one or two projects through the lost wax casting process, learn to use various types of waxes for models and basic stone setting, develop a fundamental understanding of metalsmithing and traditional lost wax methods, and learn the safe use of hand tools and power machinery used in the projects.

Program tuition is $365 per person, which covers the cost of instruction and lab fees.
