About the Course

Bristol Bronze Club is back!

This workshop involves three consecutive days where you will learn a basic introduction into lost wax bronze casting, using the ceramic shell casting technique.

On the first day you will learn how to do waxwork for the lost wax process.

The second day you will learn how to apply the ceramic shell.

On the last day, it is the pour day. The day will begin with burning out the mold, this is the 'lost wax' part of the process. Then in the afternoon, you will learn about pouring bronze artworks and get an introduction into metal finishing techniques.

By the end of the weekend, you will have your very own bronze sculpture.

Come with or without skills, we will start at the beginning.

Saturday: 10.00am - 4.30pm, Introduction, wax working

Sunday: 10.00am - 4.30pm, Finish wax, Ceramic Shell

Monday: 10.00am - 4.30pm, Burnout, bronze pouring, metal finishing

We will be using the ‘direct wax casting’ technique which essentially means using wax to make a model, forming and sculpting it like clay or plasticine, then casting these objects in bronze.
There will be a fee for materials which usually averages at £30 a student, depending on the size of the sculpture.
If you do want to make something that might be complicated or have any questions about the course get in contact with Dave using the Contact "button"link above. If you are on low income please ask about discounts.
