Bronze Casting Workshop


Mirjam Fee Barsties, Kai Schmitzer, Guido Naujoks, Schutzweste der Werkstatt, 2012

The bronze casting workshop allows students to explore bronze as an artistic means of expression. Individual creative projects are supported during training. The acquisition of traditional bronze casting skills prefaces the adoption of modern creative practices.

The workshop offers an introductory course on artisan bronze casting techniques from theoretical basics to practical implementation. Starting with the special qualities of bronze, practical implementation is accompanied by advice from specialists. At the same time the workshop is a space for creative experimentation. Cooperation with other workshops promotes intermedial dialogue between the different forms of 3D creativity.
