Event description

Description

Ever wondered how our ancestors created such amazing artefacts with such basic materials? Fascinated by primitive bronze casting? Eager to learn a new skill and explore your creative side? Then come and spend two days in our tranquil woodland setting and learn by doing.

Under the guidance of Simon and Emmie, using only local materials and prehistoric techniques, you will learn how to model with wax, invest in clay, fire your mould and cast your piece.

After an introduction to the tools, materials and methods the first day will see you create your own unique wax artefact. When you are happy with your design we will guide you through the creation of the sprue system and clay investment. On the second day your moulds will be fired and your creations cast in bronze. Then it’s time to open your mould and be amazed at what you have created!
