The training sessions are intended for sculptors, metal-founders, designers and anyone with a passion for moulding and metal-casting. They present, in detail, the different steps of the lost-wax casting process.
Several options are proposed, from silicon-rubber moulding through to the implementation of refractory “SILICAFUSION”, and culminating in the melting and the casting of bronze.
The equipment and products are included in the cost of the course, the bronze remains as an extra cost to the trainee. The trainee will have to provide work-clothes and protective-shoes.
The bronze-pourings are carried out by Marc Lebreton, founder and sculptor.
During training , a study pattern in plaster, wood, metal, silicon-rubber mould or wax brought-in by the trainee is used (patterns from 15 to 60 cm maximum).
For the “SILICAFUSION” and bronze-casting courses, the trainee must provide his/her own piece, these must be in wax, no core or other casting artefacts (runners, vents) should be attached.
All pieces produced by the trainee in the workshop remain his/her property at the end of the course.
