Event description

Description

Ever watched someone making a sword in the movies and thought it looked too cool for school? If so, this class is for you! During a 4 hour class (9-1pm or 2-6pm), you'll choose a wood sword blank cut in one of several Bronze Age designs and carefully finish it on a belt sander. In the second half of class, you get your hands dirty making a sand cast of the wooden original, and then watch as we pour an exact copy of it in molten aluminum! When they are finished, wrap the handles in leather and take both the wood and metal swords home! $85 Check out Sword Casting Guy’s FB page to see pictures and read raves from happy customers. Space is limited to 16, and the class often sells out, so strike while the iron is hot!

Note: kids and adults both take this class. There is no upper or lower age limit, but due to the challenge level of this activity, participants 8 or younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who will assist them. And you wouldn't be alone--it is common to have as many adults as kids attend this class to cast a sword.

FAQs

Is there a minimum age requirement to take the class?

Kids as young as 7 can take the class as long as they have an adult to help them. And you wouldn't be alone--it is common to have almost as many adults as kids come to experience this amazing process!


How many tickets do I need?

The cost of the class is per sword cast, not per participant, so it depends if mom or dad want to cast their own sword.


I like to do woodworking--can I make a sword ahead of time and bring it to class to cast?

Yes, some of the coolest swords we've seen have come along this way. If you want to try this, email me for dimensions and a few sword design rules of thumb.


Can adults come without a kid?

Sure!
