This part-time short course aims to teach you the carving, modelling and designing skills, whether at a beginner or more advanced level. This will include wax carving using files and burrs, applying heat for building up a model or repairing mistakes and finishing techniques to obtain a clean casting. You will be introduced to various metal finishing techniques to fully complete your pieces of jewellery.
The tutor will demonstrate how to make a prototype that can be reproduced to make multiples of the same design. The lost wax method and mould making technique will be explained accurately.
You will also be encouraged to develop your ideas and designs, exploring the possibilities through drawing and working directly with wax or milliput. By the end of this course you will be able to design three dimensional pieces suitable for casting.
This will run from October to December 2017. Term time only.
Part of the University’s commitment to life-long learning, these part-time evening classes enable you to explore your particular interest and build on existing skills. The focus is on learning through creative practice for its own sake and without the constraints of studying for an award.
No formal qualifications are required for Creative Wax Carving and Modelling but you should be motivated and demonstrate an interest in the subject you wish to pursue. While largely for adults of all ages with some experience, there are a few opportunities for beginners.
Please apply for the Creative Self Development course in Creative Wax Carving and Modelling direct to the School of Jewellery.
