An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until August 30, 2021
Running over three days this workshop covers aspects of lost wax casting while learning how to creating deep sided glass bowls. With most aspects of kiln forming we are limited to shallow bowls and platters, casting allows us to create forms that are not normally available to us. Building the form in wax allows you to create deep sided and/or elaborately formed bowls, these are then cast in a refractory mould and hot glass is cast into the cavity during the fringing process.
In class we will cover modeling in wax, making refractory moulds, preparing the mould for firing, casting in a kiln and basic finishing of the glass. Students will make two bowls. All materials are included in the class fee, students will need to provide Bullseye glass for their projects; approx $80+
class runs 30th, 31st Aug and 1st Sep
