Click here for dates and availability 2014

This class is held approximately four times a year. This class is intended to suit anyone with an interest in this process. No previous experience is needed. You will learn to make a wax model and invest this in glass mould-making material. You will then learn how to remove the wax from the mould; pack the mould with glass; produce a kiln firing schedule; and fire the kiln. You will be introduced to cold finishing techniques. You will produce at least one object of your own choice/design which you will be able to collect a day or two after the workshop.

There is a limit of 6 people per workshop enabling faster learning, and the opportunity to experiment with a number of different effects.

Areas covered: design, modelling; wax model production; mould making; wax removal; glass compatibility; firing cycles; decorative applications and cold working techniques.

The kiln firings will take place after each day of the workshop and the results can be collected or posted at Post Office rates.

Price = £190 for two days , materials, refreshments and lunch included (9:00am – 4:30pm)
