CHALICE FOR SPRING - CAST GLASS WORKSHOP

800 Degrees Glass, Campbell Road, Greenlane

Saturday 10 September, 10:00am – Saturday 17 September, 2:00pm

CHALICE MAKING WORKSHOP - CELEBRATING SPRING

This cast glass workshop is an introduction to the basics of lost wax casting in 3D.

To celebrate September Spring in Tamaki Makaurau, this workshop will guide you through to work with wax to build your Chalice to cast in gaffer lead crystal glass.. The coloured glass for this workshop will be one colour only , a colour that reminds us of spring. This will be revealed at the workshop, but be rest assured it will be a spring colour, or colour that's part of the 2022 collection of spring colours.

You will learn how to build wax models using templates, learn the art of cutting sheet wax to make forms to imbue your chalice with. You will learn about reservoirs and kiln firing and the basics of cold working on the following Saturday.

Bring with you a sense of inquiry and learn in this fun and inclusive workshop.

Course participants on this workshop are limited to a maximum of 3 people only so first in first serve.. i.e. registration form completed once emailed to you and payment for the workshop ($390.00 each).

If you have ever wondered how to cast glass, this is the perfect workshop, and after the following Saturday, you will have a Chalice of your own to take home to complete the finishing or just to look at it for years to come.

The workshop includes up to 1kg of gaffer lead crystal to cast your chalice. Due to the current Covid situation, the workshop requires all course participants to bring their own food and drink.

Email waiuklakeside@gmail.com for a registration form or contact Susan on 0274862688 for further information.

Due to supply, this workshop will involve ONE SPRING COLOURED GLASS to use in this workshop. A spring colour of 2022, it could be yellow, it could be green, or blue, but that will be all revealed in good time.
