Join us for a two-day workshop and learn how to make your own bronze cast. 

To coincide with the exhibitions, ‘David Smith. Field Work’ and ‘Bharti Kher. A Wonderful Anarchy’ founder and sculptor Stephen Coles will bring along his mobile foundry enabling participants to gain a unique first-hand experience of this age-old craft. The first day will be spent making a traditional sand mould which will then be cast on the second day, and finished off using different techniques.

This workshop provides an overview of the casting process from start to finish, highlighting some of the necessary skills used within a fine art foundry.

This class is suitable for adults with little or no experience. All materials will be provided. The workshop will take place at Hauser & Wirth Somerset on Friday 15 November, 10 am – 4 pm, and Saturday 16 November, 10 am – 4 pm.

Tickets are £200 for the two-day workshop and include lunch at Roth Bar & Grill.

Stephen Coles runs Coles Castings in Shaftesbury, North Dorset. Established in 2012, the fine art foundry predominantly specialises in the production of cast iron and cast bronze sculpture. The foundry offers a wide range of services including waxwork, mould making, sand moulding, bronze and iron casting, metal finishing and patination.

Please note that if the weather is wet, we may not be able to fire up the furnace. If this leads to postponing the workshop, an alternative opportunity will be organised.
