Michael Nashef is back by popular demand! This time for a 5 day intensive in Lost Wax Casting. Imagine immersing yourself in 5 days dedicated to learning a new skill!

With lost wax casting, you can carve or build-up wax to cast into rings, beads, pendants, earrings, bracelets and more. The process is quiet and home studio friendly.
