Registration limited to 20

Ages 14+


Join Storm Lee of Glyph Artisans for a Wax Carving Workshop at The Witching Hour! Learn about the ancient art of lost wax casting and create your own meaningful talisman in the form of a pendant or coin. By the end of the class, you will have completed a wax model of your design, which will be cast in silver, finished, and shipped back to you. 


This is a beginner-level workshop with a focus on having fun and making something you love. We will cover basic techniques for relief carving in wax, including how to use hand tools to build up and remove wax, fixing wax breaks, and tool safety. Choose from a selection of pre-made blanks to customize, and either follow a guided tutorial or branch out with your own design. A handout of resources will be provided for those who wish to continue your wax carving journey at home.


Classroom space is wheelchair accessible. Masks are strongly encouraged.
