Casting in bronze is often regarded as the pinnacle of sculpture. Yet the costs and procedures involved in the classic lost wax method often places it outside the access of most artists. Sandcasting offers a means of casting in bronze that is much lower in cost and is more direct and accessible, particularly for emerging artists.
This 2-day workshop will outline the processes and techniques involved in sandcasting. The workshop will provide the opportunity to create a small cast bronze sculpture at a price that is affordable to anyone. No previous sculpture experience is required.
An additional cost of $220 is required to cover foundry and bronze casting costs.
