|Description:||Used for centuries, this intricate process and historic tradition of creating complex metal shapes and parts is in high demand today for both commercial and ornamental uses. 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. Our instructors show you how to design, draw and produce work in non-ferrous metals through a variety of studio, and foundry demonstrations, discussions, field tips and exercises.
With an emphasis on developing proper technique and using appropriate tools safely, you’ll learn how to design, sculpt, mold and cast in bronze 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.
