WAX CARVING COURSE

10am- 1pm. 5 Week Course

School closed 29th October-4th November for Mid-term Break.

School closed 3rd-9th December for National Crafts and Design Fair, and 21st December- 6th January 2019 for Christmas Break.

We have been asked to offer this course by our students as a stand alone course to demonstrate through repetition and practice the intricacies of wax carving. Waxes are hand filed and carved in the studio with resulting castings cleaned up and polished in class.

In the class, all students will learn to carve and shape wax using a variety of techniques. Students will have an opportunity to make a number of pieces to cast however the emphasis of the course is to teach technique and also to explain how the casting process works and how it may be used to develop a small collection.

After the wax carving is finished, each students piece is carefully packaged (wax is delicate) and is sent to be cast. There will be an additional charge for silver casting - a guideline is from €25 for a silver ring and approximately €15 for individual smaller items. The turn around on casting is only one week so the student then gets an opportunity to clean up the casting and finish and polish it under the tutors tuition.

Each student sits at a designated goldsmith skills bench with all professional hand tools and wax provided.
