Time: 9.30am – 4.30pm Saturday and Sunday (these hours are flexible)
Where: Carmen's rural Glass Studio: 1427 Brunswick Road, 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 the glass we will be using, colour mixing and what to expect once your piece is out of the kiln.
