Bronze Sculpture: Creating for Casting
Wednesdays: 25 November, 2, 9 & 16 December
Sculptor Richard Janes will take inspiration from Elisabeth Frink to introduce the class to bronze casting in this 4-week evening class. Following a detailed look at Frink’s working methods, you will explore modelling techniques, including working with plaster and carving tools to create your own relief sculpture. These models will then be sand-cast into bronze at a local foundry.
The final session will involve finishing and patinating the bronze sculptures. All tools will be provided. There will be some use of power tools and chemicals.
