Explore lost wax casting in this week-long intensive workshop. Coursework will emphasize the benefits of wax as a medium and what you can achieve with this singular process. Working with wax allows you to create 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. Class will cover everything you need to know to make wax bend to your will and achieve your vision, including best approaches for casting with sprues and reservoirs.
We can walk you through a set project or you can apply your own direction and experiment with new ideas while practicing the 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 coldworking.
