About this Event
FIFTH class of a six-part series for Jewelry Production 101.
We cast the prior (first) class batch of designs in bronze so students gain jewelry casting experience before advancing to casting precious metals.
Please note we must limit this class to eight attendees as jewelry class demand is high, and these process-specific classes require undivided attention for your safety.
We are happy to see so much interest in jewelry production here at DMS and want these classes to continue.
Depending upon the prior class batch of designs, we will be preparing for rings, pendants, or findings.
We will be covering a lot of material, so be ready to take notes...
You can pour a casting if you have had:
Lost Wax Casting Production Techniques and
Precious Metals Casting Preparation 101.
If you have not had the prerequisite classes yet, you can put a design into a flask for the next cycle and get set up for the two required classes (will save you an extra trip plus prep time).
DMS is a nonprofit organization and does not charge big bucks for classes (for example this jewelry class series is free and open to all).
The equivalent class at your local Community College / University would be $$$.
If you would like to see the jewelry department here at DMS thrive - - consider a donation worthy of the class you enjoy - - you can fill out an envelope with your donation and throw it into the donations box.
Know that we are grateful for donations of any amount, and will continue to provide outstanding classes based on your feedback.
Thanks in advance...
P.S. Be on the lookout for more jewelry classes (usually the same day) on calendar.dallasmakerspace.org
