Lost Wax Kiln Casting Workshop with Evelyn Dunstan

A hands-on intensive workshop in lost wax casting, with an emphasis on the benefits that wax as a medium offers and what you can only achieve with this process, allowing you to create more complex sculptures combinning 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 - how to make wax do what you want to be able to achieve your vision, and then how to set up the best approach for casting with sprues and reservoirs.

We can step you through a set project or you can apply your own style and direction and experiment with new ideas while practicing new skills learnt.

A variety of investment moulding 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 and risk divesting and cold working.

All levels are welcome, previous experience with glass is an advantage. Ideally suited for those who like to challenge themselves.
