Bob Woods sculpture
Fields of Study
visual arts

In this program, participants will learn about the production of sculpture as well as everyday objects through the process of casting. Students will design and construct models in plaster, clay, and wax. We will experience the process of sand casting in aluminum. We will do plaster molding, wax fabrication, and investing for (the ultimate) lost wax casting in bronze. After the work of de-gating and chasing, we will experiment with various patina applications for final presentation. This is a process-intensive studio class where we turn ideas into bronze. Beginners are welcome.
