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.
