A fantastic opportunity to have the chance to make a small sculpture or object to be cast into bronze for you at our Carmarthenshire foundry. The course also includes two live online tutorials.
You can make just about anything you like to be cast, but we can help with ideas during the tutorials. Others have made animals, plaques, door knockers and portrait faces, for example.
It's suitable for anyone, whether you have any prior knowledge or not - great fun for friends in lockdown, for a birthday or for artists and makers who'd love to see how their work will look in bronze. Suitable too for teenagers or those studying for A levels, Foundation or Degrees.
How does it work?
We will send you a 100 grams piece of specialist modelling wax in the post which you will model into a sculpture of your own and post back to us for casting. This amount of wax will yield a finished sculpture of around 1kg in bronze.
When you receive the wax you will be given an introduction to the material and taken through the modelling process in a live online tutorial at a time convenient to you.
A further tutorial will be arranged when you feel that you are ready to post the wax back to us, this will allow for any changes or adjustments to your sculpture.
We will cast your piece here at the foundry and you will receive your finished bronze sculpture approximately two weeks from when we receive your wax.
- Modelling wax to create your sculpture
- Two one-to-one online tutorials with our bronze casting tutor to help you through the process and answer any questions - these will be arranged at times to suit you and can be offered through a variety of different platforms (such as Skype, Zoom, Google Meet, etc)
- A finished bronze sculpture returned to you by post - the finished sculpture will be around 1kg in weight
