Participants in this day-long course will create two unique pieces. In the forge you will make a small pin brooch, based on those found in archaeological digs in the vicinity of Scottish Sculpture Workshop.

Using the forge you will learn basic blacksmithing techniques, including hammering and drawing out. In the foundry, you will design a personal plaque, which you will cast in bronze using the SSW furnace. You will learn the basics of sand moulds as well as work in a group to pour bronze. If you have any suggestions, questions or requirements relating to accessibility at SSW, please get in touch and they will make every effort to support you to visit.
