What you'll learn in this glass sculpture class:

A hands-on intensive workshop in lost wax casting, with an emphasis on the benefits that wax as a medium offers and what you can only achieve with this process. Working with wax allows you to create more complex sculptures combining fine detail, textures, undercuts and varying thicknesses. 

We will focus on the ways you can work with wax; from a liquid to a solid, tools and techniques, manipulation, constructing and joining, surface details and finishes. We will cover everything you need to know to make wax do what you want and be able to achieve your vision, including how to set up the best approach for casting with sprues and reservoirs.

We can step you through a set project or you can apply your own style and direction and experiment with new ideas while practicing new skills learned.

A variety of investment molding methods and techniques will be covered. Refractory materials will be manipulated and modified to apply to your individual application with the aim to reduce the amount of time, risk, and cold working.
