Open Studio? Guided Development? What does this all mean?
800 Degrees Glass is opening up its fully equipped studio for your use under Susan K Louie’s guidance. This initiative is part of Susan’s objective of bringing glass awareness to the region of Tamaki Makaurau and its surrounding isthmus; weekend workshops are already in place.
You will be guided through making wax models or clay models (your choice) after being taught how to use wax and clay to make forms, sculptures, 2D or 3D. There will be a limit of Two people per two hour workshop.However, you can register and book in your times according to the date and times the workshops will be in session.
Normally, the instruction and demonstrations take around about one hour and, from then, course participants will start and continue to make their work, change it, work on it over the next eight sessions until it is resolved through one on one guidance. You may be working with others in the studio, but Susan will always be there to assist you to develop your creativity and help you with your intentions. The open studio will include the use of wax for modelling (please note that the wax remains the property of 800 Degrees Glass).
In the following weeks, or sessions, you will continue to develop your work or idea and resolve any technical issues which may come up and we will resolve those together with technical advice and considerations when casting with lead crystal.
Once you have completed your model in wax particularly, you will then have the option of casting this in glass.You will learn how to invest your model and steam it out and fill with glass and fire.
