Introduction to lost wax cast glass

This is a 3 Day Workshop

Day 1: Wax model making 9.30 - 4 on Saturday 19th June
Day 2: Refractory mould making, steaming & glass selection 9.30 - 4 on Sunday 20th June
Day 3: Glass reveal & finishing techniques 9.30 - 2 on Saturday 26th June
Please note that the third day is only until 2pm

In this introduction to the cast glass process we will be working on a very small scale, making
detailed forms inspired by microscopic life and structures found in nature. Immerse yourself in
science and glass art.

Day 1:
We will be learning to sculpt, carve and join waxes, this workshop is an opportunity to explore
and create by being process led. Making structures by altering waxes made from found objects
(supplied by tutor Lisa) as well as free hand sculpting. These wax model forms will become your
glass object.
Day 2:
You will learn to make a layered refractory mould of your wax model, then steam out the wax
from the mould. The moulds will go into the kiln during the week to fire the glass.
Day 3:
Return the following week after the kiln firing to reveal your glass from the mould and learn
some simple finishing techniques.

You will take home a small unique glass sculpture.

Images of microscopic life, organisms, and any weird and wonderful structures found in nature.
