You think making a 3d animal is going to be difficult? Think again! You can make your animal as simple, complicated, and detailed as you want. It’s going to be recognizable, as long as you keep a few design elements in mind.
This class is perfect if you want to work on your 3d carving skills. You’ll learn how to make simple but recognizable carvings. How to add detail to make it more realistic. And how to make bold decisions when it’s not looking like you want it to.
Is this what you're looking for? Then don't wait
Hi I’m Sandy. I make all the waxes you see in the videos and photos. But I also write the handout, make the videos and edit them into the tutorial videos. Out of all these, wax carving is definitely my strong point.
I trained at the school of jewellery in Dublin, where I learned wax carving. After finishing my degree, I taught at the school for a year and worked at a jewellery shop as a bench jeweller/sales person.
While travelling through Asia for the past two years (pre pandemic), I took some short courses to expand my skills and rented bench space to keep making jewellery (need a recommendation of jewellery classes in Asia/bench rental? Ask me!) Personal highlight was teaching a wax carving workshop at Lucy Walker in Kuala Lumpur.
Besides my training, I’ve practiced A LOT. Add a healthy dose of stubbornness (I won’t let wax breaking defeat me!) to keep trying until I can make what I set out to make. There’s broken waxes and first attempts in my scrap wax box. I’m proud of those, because practice is the only way to get better.
This class is made with love. I love wax carving and I’m excited to teach you.
