Explore foundry techniques, beginning with sand casting. Each student will make a simple object for sand molding and casting. Once the bronzes are poured, learn metal finishing and patination techniques. Time permitting additional models will be created that can be molded, cast in wax, gated and poured using the lost-wax bronze casting technique, followed by finishing and patina.
All levels of experience are welcome, and individuals can advance at their own pace.
