Re: Bronze Casting Courses

Congratulations

Have you had a lot of enquiries?
How have you been marketing it?

I ask because I am setting up stone carving workshops in the Midlands

Re: Bronze Casting Courses

Hi Jim

it was just a 2 day course, we did sand casting in pewter, then a life cast of thumbs, then lost wax cast of those thumbs in pewter , and finaly a bronze cast into sand. it all went realy well especilay as id never actually cast bronze into sand! lol, so i was very pleased when every one opened ther molds and found some bronze inside!

Re: Bronze Casting Courses

Hi Jeramie - where abouts in Australia are you? I don't recognise 'Nana Glen', so I guess you're not in Victoria. If you were I'd be interested in participating. [ps this is my 1st 'post' ever, anywhere, so hope I'm doing it right!]

Re: Bronze Casting Courses

Hi Philip

I have now set-up and started running my own stone carving courses. It's been a huge learning curve and I have had to move location which turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

Its very gratifying to run these courses for all involved. Great fun and a socialable event for such a normally solitary vocation.

if anyone is interested in seeing what i set up feel free to ask any questions or pass on advice - especially about how to get the courses known.
