A New Course!
We are delighted to add a brand new course to our collection this August – BRONZE CASTING.
David Snoo Wilson will be bringing his ‘Travelling Foundry’ to the school along with his knowledge and expertise to inspire you on this exciting 5 day introductory workshop. Designed especially, you will be learning all about bronze casting techniques, using the lost-wax process and ceramic shell moulds.
Whatever your previous experience or skill level, David will guide you through all the intricate processes, enabling you to master the techniques of this specialist art, which dates back to Roman times.
This introductory Bronze casting course is very fast paced and a time intensive process so you are advised to bring a hand-sized item or smaller with you to cast into bronze. You are welcome to bring your own moulds, otherwise we will be using a wax-like clay to sculpt with.
The first two days will focus on wax working, while the third will focus on making the investment mould. The following 2 days will be the bronze pour and and metal finishing.
