Wax is an incredibly versatile material: You can use it for all and any purpose from high-precision, detailed work to spur-of-the-moment moulding, unleashing the imagination to create unique shapes of endless, surprising, off-beat variety.
We work with goldsmithing tools, heat, fire, and standard household knives, needles and scissors. But above all, it is our hands that we use to mould wax.

No goldsmithing skills are required. The focus of this workshop is on creating with wax, and we won’t be casting.

When Gabi Veit opened her graphic design studio, she had never worked in a graphic design studio before; when she founded and began managing a cabaret theatre, she had never studied theatre before. Having begun to study contemporary jewellery in Florence at the age of 40, she graduated in 2011 and now designs jewellery and spoons as if born to the vocation. She lives in Bolzano and Switzerland, creates exhibitions, designs books and loves spending her time in kitchens, gardens, the mountains and between worlds. Wax is her favourite material, and she uses it to carve, model and dip virtually all of her works.
