4-day metal casting workshop August 15-18, 2024

This unique experience will be of interest to sculptors, jewelers, knife makers, re-enactors, and students of the history of technology, metallurgy, and Scandinavian culture. The workshop will feature detailed instruction about the process, comparisons to other metal casting traditions of other cultures, as well as hands-on experience accessible in very few places. Each student will come away with one or two small bronze castings. There will be opportunities to learn about simple furnace and kiln design and the making of simple crucibles.
