Sandcast Bronze Sculpture with Richard Byrnes
This two day workshop offers the chance for those totally new to sculpture to see their artwork cast in bronze . Casting in bronze is often regarded as the pinnacle of sculpture yet the costs and procedures involved places it outside the access of most artists. This two day workshop will provide the opportunity to create a small cast bronze sculpture at a price that is affordable to anyone.
Students are guided through the procedures to prepare a sculpture for casting and are also instructed in the filing, grinding, patination and presentation of the cast bronze.
No prior sculpture experience is required. All tools and materials provided.
$ 220 per student is required to cover foundry costs – additional cost. Payable in cash to tutor at first class.
DATES: Sunday 4th August and 18th August 2019 – Two weeks are required between sessions in order to cast
This workshop takes place on 4 August, from 10:00am to 4:00pm.
