This course is an introduction into the process of sculpting wax as the initial step in creating work for the "lost wax" metal casting process. This process of using "lost wax" is the traditional casting method of creating jewellery and bronze sculpture of varying scale. Through presentations, individual instruction and technical demonstrations, students will create a series of wax sketches (solid wax, hollow form and medallions) as they investigate the wax mediums possibilities.
Tuition: $335 + Materials fee $70 = Total $405Notes: Students will have the opportunity to cast their work for an additional cost. This will be discussed in class with the instructor.
