FROM WAX TO JEWELRY
4days workshop with Gabi Veit
27,28,29 & 1 April 2015
Duration: 19 hours
In this workshop we will experience a different approach and an alternative way of working with wax. Wax gives us the opportunity to make jewelry without professional tools and machineries. Because of its nature it offers plenty of possibilities to work with, such as modeling, carving, melting etc.
Throughout the workshop we will also go through different experiences, playing with wax, creating, trying, failing, recreating, selecting…
Several exercises will give us a lot of fun and help us go deeper in our personal approach to jewelry.
After that, we will select some of the pieces and have them casted in silver, brass or copper.
At the end of the workshop we will discuss the results and make our final comments on our creations.
Days of the course: 27,28,29 & 1 April 2015.
