Casting a bronze sword

Saturday | tba | 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The fascination of bronze casting is unbroken: glowing metal flows into its form and solidifies, and blaze turns into a blade. In this workshop, participants learn how to prepare a mold, how to handle the molten bronze correctly, and how to complete the work in fine detail. The result is a sword a Celtic prince would have been proud of.

The workshop takes place outside, therefore, dirt-resistant and weatherproof clothing is recommended, sturdy shoes is required! You are welcome to bring your own food.
