Lost Wax Carving and Casting with Clare Poppi introduces lost wax casting techniques. Students will sculpt and carve various waxes to create three-dimensional jewellery and small objects. The waxes will be sent to professional casting house and students will learn how to clean up, polish and finish the returned metal castings. Some experimental casting, e.g, sand, salt, straw and cuttlefish will also be undertaken. The course is suitable for beginners and students with some silversmithing experience who will be able to tackle more advanced projects.
