Traditional wax working can be an incredibly tedious and technical process, even more so when it will be cast in glass. In this two session class, we’ll dispel much of the mystery and difficulty involved in the process by working loosely and creatively. We will explore a variety of wax types to achieve specific results. Each student will create multiple wax objects, mold, and then cast them in glass. All levels are welcome to join. We will be focusing on wax manipulation, texture building, assembly techniques, refractory molding, kiln preparation, casting, and simple finishing.
