CONTEMPORARY

WAX CARVING & WAX MODELLING

10 Week Course - Monday Evenings 

26 April 2018 – 20 Nov 2017

 

This terms theme is “Water and Underwater Life”

What will be taught?

This course will start off with an inspirational research into ‘water and its rich life forms’. From the smallest micro-organism to the biggest creatures in oceans, lakes rivers and puddles.  

You will explore and experiment with different carving and modelling waxes to create small objects and jewellery within the theme. We will then cover contemporary techniques such as wax dripping and fusing.

To achieve a metal copy of your wax pieces, your creations will be sent off to a casting company. Using the technique of “lost wax casting” you can then decide your masters to be either cast in precious metals such as silver, brass or bronze. After that, you will learn how to finish the castings, including traditional techniques such as filing, sanding and polishing.

During the finishing process you will be encouraged to experiment with your designs to reflect your ideas and inspirations within the theme.

The course will also cover how the lost wax casting process works and differences to other casting techniques will be discussed.

Who is it for?

Mixed level, from beginners to intermediate and advanced students who want to broaden their skills.
