Why You Need to Try Sculpture Making in Toronto

Why You Need to Try Sculpture Making in Toronto

When you’re just starting to get to know someone, deciding where to take them on dates can be pretty stressful.

Movies? Dinner? Drinks?

C’mon, you can do better than that.

My date wanted to try out wax sculpting, so we met with a local artist, Julie Campagna, at her studio gallery on Queen West.

We honestly didn’t know what to expect because neither of us had ever done anything like this before.

As soon as we walked into Julie’s gallery, she greeted us kindly and made us feel right at home.

Here’s how our sculpture making class in Toronto went!

Julie Campagna’s wax sculptures

Julie told us about the basics of wax sculpting, showed us her work, and shared her personal stories with us.

She grew up close to where we did, and we bonded over that.

My date told her all about the potentialities of Instagram for artists.

As she walked us around her cozy little gallery, I was instantly drawn to her work and its dark themes.

Julie asked us if we wanted to make a face or a hand, and my date wanted to make a face.

He ended up making Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy instead of a face, and I ended up making a face that turned out to be Dobby from Harry Potter.

Clearly we’re not artists, but we had a lot of fun creating our sculptures.

It’s way cuter than just taking your date to dinner.

Julie informed us we were just below High Park, so we decided to go there after.

We checked out the High Park Zoo and walked all around the park and even though the leaves hadn’t exactly changed colour yet, it was a beautiful fall sight.
