During the Coronavirus pandemic, we are unable to run our usual courses here at Cilyrynys. We have therefore put together a course that will allow you to model a small sculpture in wax at home which can be sent to us for casting into bronze.
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 one-to-one online tutorial.
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.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
- 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
