Suitable for all



Create your own cast bronze sculpture on this intensive course. You will first produce a small (no bigger than 150mm) wax sculpture for casting as you learn about the qualities of waxes, gain skills with tools and look at finishing techniques. Discover wax pouring, silicone mould making, lost wax casting and bronze casting processes, while producing at least one small completed piece.
