Spend the first-evening discussing ideas, learning different techniques used in carving wax and producing your very own carving which will be cast for you in silver before your second session.
The second day will be spent cleaning, texturing and polishing your final silver piece/s. Soldering findings and possibly adding an oxidised patina.
