About the Course

This course gives you an insight into the endless possibilities of sculpting with wax to create bronze castings. Working with locally sourced natural beeswax, you will be introduced to a variety of techniques, used across the world for thousands of years.

The tutor will guide you through making whatever you wish, including jewellery, trinkets, household décor, figurative sculpture, ornamental animals etc!

Abigail Burt has travelled to Nepal and India to learn the traditional techniques of lost-wax casting. As a Winston Churchill fellow, Abigail is a fine art sculptor and contemporary medal maker.
