Last year several folks on this list expressed an interest in taking
a lost-wax casting workshop at Wildacres Retreat in Little
Switzerland, North Carolina. Eventually, everyone canceled because
the available date was too late in the year. Most folks are
interested in a date during the conventional summer vacation months.
I have been notified by Wildacres that as many as 7 rooms are
available during the first week of July. The rooms are double
occupancy so up to 14 students could be accommodated.
This will be a hands-on workshop with all materials and tools being
supplied. The cost will be $310 for room (double occupancy), board,
and instruction with an additional $50 lab fee that will include
supplies, an ounce of sterling casting grain, and a copy of the
textbook “Lost-Wax Casting: Old, New, and Inexpensive Methods.”
Anyone interested in this workshop should contact me off-list for
all the details.
