Where: My Rural Studio, in Brunswick Whanganui

What: For this workshop we will be creating a simple form that you will embellish with your own designs. I will demonstrate ways to add textures and relief using rubber moulds and specific wax working techniques. This process is 'lost wax' casting. Once your wax masterpiece is ready I will demonstrate how to 'invest' your wax, steam it out, and prepare it for firing. During this time we will talk about glass we will be using, colour mixing and what to expect once your piece is out of the kiln.

This is a fun, creative weekend intended to give participants a taste of the art and craft of glass casting.
