Description

So why let the kids have all of the fun? I often have adults ask if I ever do bronze sword making classes, and the answer is yes! Bronze melts at almost 2000° F, so it requires a hotter foundry and different tools than our aluminum class, but the process is pretty much the same. Over the course of three evening classes from 7-10 pm, you'll choose Bronze Age sword designs and make careful sand casts to be poured in molten bronze. Next, you'll spend a few hours sanding the swords to a smooth finish using a combination of belt sanders and hand sanding. Finally, you'll choose a hardwood handle and learn to install brass rivets using a hammer and anvil. Our bronze classes produce high end swords that will hold an honored position in your sword collection. $275 includes all materials. Class size limited to 6, so grab a friend and strike while the iron is hot. Classes meet from 7-10 pm Wednesday-Friday or by special arrangement.
