Course

Bristol Bronze Club

Fri, 14/06/2019 - Sun, 16/06/2019

Bristol Bronze Club

The 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. The Sunday 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 three days, you will have your very own bronze sculpture.

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


Friday: 10.00am - 4.30pm, Introduction, wax working

Saturday: 10.00am - 4.30pm, Finish wax, Ceramic Shell

Sunday: 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 info@oreandingot@gmail.com. If you are on low income please ask about discounts.

Taught by David Snoo Wilson, RCA
