This wax modelling sculpture course is an introduction to working with wax as a creative material. Learn about working with soft and hard waxes, wax casting, making wax sculpture as a finished product or as a stage towards casting into metals or ceramic slip.

Wax is a versatile modelling medium for making sculpture. During this course students will be encouraged to experiment with the different properties of wax, building architecturally and experimenting with different textures as well as casing and assembling components from plaster moulds.
