About Kate Wolf:

Kate has been carving wax and making jewelry for 36 years and teaching for more than 25 years. She teaches in workshops all over the U.S. and Canada and at her school in Portland, Maine. She has students fly in from all over the world to take classes with her. Kate won MJSA’s Innovation Award for her Wolf Tools and Wolf Wax by Ferris and continues to develop tools for jewelers to love. Kate is a former Director of Production and master model-maker for the Franklin Mint, and she holds a BFA in Metalsmithing and Jewelry from Tyler School of Art.

The first time Kate sat down at a jeweler’s bench she said to herself, “I could explore this field for the rest of my life and not run out of techniques to learn.” Decades later, she knows she was absolutely right.

Educator, jeweler and tool maven Kate Wolf has three loves: carving wax, designing tools and teaching. One is meditative and intuitive, the second exhilarating. And teaching? Absolutely “divine.” That “student/teacher interaction and enthusiasm is inspiring,” she says, especially when she has a classroom full of different skill levels and reasons for embarking on wax-carving and jewelry-making. “It’s my job to meet each student at their level with the utmost respect and help them build their skills and inspire their creativity. I have no expectations of where they are,” she says. “I just want to help get them where they want to be . . . and beyond!”

As for Kate’s favorite teaching moment? “That ‘Aha!’ moment. It’s a blessing to be a part of the learning process, to help students see things in a new way and master skills they thought were beyond their reach.”
