800 Degrees Glass, S K Louie, Sculptor, Cast Glass
Glass… seductive, fragile, hard, luminous, reflective.
Come and learn a new art form in a beautiful rural setting beside Lake Whatihua on the Sunset Coast.
DUE TO popular demand a workshop has been arranged and scheduled for early November. 2.5 days to learn the art of lost wax casting in the studio of 800 Degrees Glass.
Here, students will learn how to work with wax or clay for open forms, wax for 3D forms and how to use master moulds for creating similar objects imbued with different nuances for each person.
Students will create one piece of work, which will be fired and return the following week to divest their casts and learn some very basic cold working techniques and instructions.
The workshops are considerably hands on and fun.
Give it a go.
