Description

One day workshop were you will learn to mould and cast your own Bronze Age replica axe head.

These workshops are limited to three participants for safety and because I don't have space for more!

10.00 - 15.30 with tea breaks and a lunch break.
Coffee and tea provided, and there may be cake.
We are a diary free household so soya or oatmilk.
Please bring your own lunch. We have a microwave.

The day starts with an intro into bronze casting methodology and a safety talk.
Then we will look at preparation of an item for moulding and mould making.

After preparation of the furnace this will be fired to heat, metal prepared and the crucible filled.
A demonstration pour will ensure everyone is familiar with the safest way to proceed.

Then we will prepare moulds and look at common problems and how to avoid them.
This usually takes into lunch time.

After lunch the furnace will be fired again and each participant will cast their own axe.

Most of the remaining time will be taken with hand finishing the casts - fettling, grinding, polishing and if time allows decoration.

The bulk of the day will be spent outdoors so please dress warmly and wear full length trousers (jeans) solid footwear and a thick coat.

All safety gear will be provided - gloves, apron, face shield, etc. This workshop assumes some practical knowledge and ability, the use of tools, including power tools.

Workshop location - my studio is NW London HA5 5JQ and there is on-street parking.

Once booking payment has been made please email me at jonnycope [!at] hotmail.com for further info or feel free to call me on 07747 018518 if you wish to discuss anything.

Arrived earlier then expected..A little ruff from the casting, but cleaned up pretty good, and with a forced patina, looks great. I'm excited to have it in my collection. Thanks you.
