About the Course
Bristol Bronze Club is back!
This workshop involves two consecutive Saturdays where you will learn a basic introduction into lost wax bronze casting, using the ceramic shell casting technique. On the first Saturday, you will do waxwork and learn to apply the ceramic shell. The second Saturday is the pour day where you will learn about pouring bronze artworks and get an introduction into metal finishing techniques. By the end of these two Saturdays, you will have your very own bronze sculpture.
Come with or without skills, we will start at the beginning.
First Saturday: 10.00am - 4.30pm, Wax working, ceramic shell
Second Saturday 10.00am - 4.30pm, 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.
