Through this course you will become confident in the fundamentals of mould making. You will plan and produce rubber and plaster moulds, work with wax, sand casting and ceramic shell to gain a strong understanding of the processes of producing moulds and running systems for bronze casting.

Taking your completed moulds into the foundry, you will learn the ins and outs of foundry practice, working as a small team to pour your moulds and create bronze casts. You will gain experience of finishing and fettling bronze, plus basic patina, giving a complete overview of bronze casting and finishing.
