Workshop: Casting with Evelyn Dunstan 
Venue: David Hobday’s Studio, 9 Diggorra Crt., Point Lonsdale, Vic. 3225
Dates: 12 - 15 & 19th March 2020
Maximum 5 students 
Accompanied and supported by Cathy Newton.
A hands-on intensive workshop in lost wax casting, with an emphasis on the benefits that wax as a medium offers and what you can only achieve with this process. Building 3 dimensional forms that incorporate undercuts, explore angles, thick to thin and capture fine detail in a closed casting. 
While we can step you through a set project, there is a freedom for you to apply your own ideas and style, experimenting and practising new skills in different directions.
Days 1 - 3: will focus on the ways you can work with wax. Starting with ideas and techniques and how to make that wax do what you want to achieve your vision, through to further developing wax skills that apply to your own style, construction, bracing, flow, sprues and reservoirs and having a work ready to cast. 
Day 4: Techniques and manipulating investment moulding methods and modifying refractory materials to apply to your individual application with the aim to reduce the amount of time and risk divesting and cold working. 
Day 5: Divesting … the reveal. (alternative arrangements can be made if your time away from home is limited and you only want to attend the first 4 days)
Gaffer casting crystal (will be the main glass used, with some experimenting in Blackwoods).


This workshop is not for absolute beginners. Some knowledge of lost wax casting or previous related kiln formed/warm glass experience.


Days will be fun, long and full!
Class hours 9 - 5, with studio access until 10pm 


$1,250 includes all materials and equipment, lunches and a night of wood-fired pizzas included.
Point Lonsdale is a coastal town and has a lot of accommodation but March is a busy time so you will need to book early.
I recommend Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale Accomodation.
