Create your own sculpture in bronze…
Starting with a two-hour session on the Monday evening, this 5-day casting course will take our inspiration from nature, botanical forms and found natural objects. Working both in wax and directly with organic objects the course will explore sculpting and aesthetics to create individual bronze sculptures. Bronze casting is a long and involved process, yet by applying attention and working directly with the constraints and properties of simple materials, through a series of directed tasks, complex and beautiful forms of expression emerge for everyone. There is the potential for real alchemy when we take time to become conversant and engaged with every step of a process. Understanding that creativity and self-expression is vital for the well-being and resilience for both the individual and community and it is a deeply empowering experience to discover new skills and aspects within ones-self.
First evening and Day 1: Working with wax: contemplating form and aesthetics, finding the extraordinary within the ordinary and playing with new techniques to develop ideas ready for casting.
Days 2 and 3: Preparation for casting, including spruing and shelling.
Day 4: Burning out shells and pouring bronze.
Day 5: Finishing and patination.
