Course Fees: €190 – 10am to 5pm
In this workshop, participants will learn how to make a sand mould from a solid original, otherwise known as a “pattern”. Bring with you a suitable pattern* and in a few hours you will have a bronze or aluminium casting of that piece! Fettling and basic finishing will be done at the end of the class.
*Advice on suitable patterns (flat-backed or two-part, with no undercuts) will be emailed to you when you book the workshop. Everyday and found objects (bones, shells, nuts, household items) can lend themselves nicely to moulding, as well as your original sculpted patterns.
