Are you curious to understand more about how to draw faces? The human body and the human face all have their own symmetry.

These techniques can help improve realistic drawing skills, the drawing of faces, as well as improve one’s understanding of perspective. Even beginners can use this method to achieve surprising results.

In this workshop, you will work with different forms of wax to create jewellery or small objects. Wax comes in hard blocks, tubes and rods which can be sawn and filed back, but it can also be melted down to create more natural, expressive shapes and textures. This enables you to work technically and very precisely or in a more spontaneous, intuitive manner. Wax can also be combined with other materials for casting for example, natural fibres, plastic and metal. The pieces can then be outsourced for casting in the metal of your choice.
