During the Coronavirus pandemic, we have been unable to run our usual regular courses here at Cilyrynys. We have therefore put together a course that will allow you to model a small sculpture in wax at home which can be sent to us for casting into bronze. Due to the popularity of this course we will be continuing it after the end of the lockdown too.

The course is suitable for any level of experience and would make an ideal gift! We can provide a gift card too.

How does it work?

We will send you a 100 grams piece of specialist modelling wax in the post which you will model into a sculpture of your own and post back to us for casting. This amount of wax will yield a finished sculpture of around 1kg in bronze.

We'll send you an information sheet with the wax and you'll contact us when you're ready for your first introductory one-to-one online tutorial. During this you will be given an introduction to the material, taken through the modelling process and you'll have the chance to ask any questions and discuss ideas of what to make.

A further tutorial will be arranged when you feel that you are ready to post the wax back to us, this will allow for any changes or adjustments to your sculpture.

We will cast your piece here at the foundry and you will receive your finished bronze sculpture approximately two weeks from when we receive your wax.

Cost: £135
