Tutor- Katie Shanahan
B.A. Visual Arts (honours) Gold and Silversmithing. Resident Artist & Gallery Supervisor.
This wax carving workshop runs over two days. The main focus is to learn modelling techniques to create forms that can be used to make a piece of jewellery including carving and mouldable wax forming. The items are then sent to a professional casting company to be cast in silver.
On day one, you will have the opportunity to experiment with different types of wax. Once you’ve ready we jump into making your own piece to be sent to the casters. On day two you will be exposed to different techniques to clean up your casting and complete your silver piece
You will have the chance to walk away from the course with a completed silver piece of your own and basic skill to repeat the process independently or attempt a more advanced wax carving class.
