|Description:||Learn blacksmithing, welding and metal casting techniques to manipulate, form and join steel for both form and function. Focusing on exploring your personal expression in metal, we give you the necessary discipline and skills to be able to venture into the global metal marketplace. With an emphasis on developing proper technique and using appropriate tools safely, you’ll learn how to design, sculpt, mold and cast in bronze using sand and lost wax casting methods.
Plus, you’ll get hands-on practice in studio production, casting sculptural forms and pouring molten metal as you design, create and develop molds and patterns for casting in our foundry room.
You will gain the control and confidence to produce traditional and contemporary ironwork and reach a level appropriate for a blacksmith apprentice. Produce work in non-ferrous metals through a variety of studio and foundry demonstrations, discussions, field tips, exercises and self-directed studio time.
