Masterclass in wax modelling and casting

5 days 4–6 people825 euros per person

The qualities of wax allow an easiness and quickness in the working that is rather unusual for those who are used to working in metal. Participants will be introduced to basic mould-making techniques and explore the specific potentials of this material by means of kneading, cutting, dipping, melting, fusing, dripping – putting an emphasis on working with liquid waxes. The wax models will be converted into metal pieces by the technique known as lost wax casting (or cire perdu) with a vacuum casting machine. The description of volumes, surfaces and content, inside and outside, and the relationship of body to space, will serve as criteria for our work and discussions. Participants will be able to cast their own pieces. Prices include materials.
