Event description

Description

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 two days, you will do waxwork and learn to apply the ceramic shell. On the Monday it is the pour day where you will learn about pouring bronze artworks and get an introduction into metal finishing techniques. By the end of the bank holiday, you will have your very own bronze sculpture.


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



Saturday 14th June 10.00am - 4.30pm, Introduction, wax working


Sunday 15th June 10.00am - 4.30pm, Finish wax, Ceramic Shell


Sunday 16th June 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 at david@oreandingot.com. If you are on low income please contact about discounts.





Taught by David Snoo Wilson, RCA
