Bristol Bronze Club - 3 day lost wax bronze casting workshop


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.

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

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

Sunday: 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.
Materials will be included in price upto 1.5kg of Bronze.
