Leeds Invasion!

This week Fine Art students from Leed College of Art join us at SSW to take a technical foray into the processes of bronze casting.

SSW Senior Technician Eden Jolly has been guiding Fine art students Richard Green, Liam Guest, Sarah Hawkins, Claire Holyoake, James Nicholl, Joe Roberts, Brendan Stokes and their tutor Sheila Gaffney through the finer details involved in the process of bronze casting here at the SSW foundry.

The students are currently in the midst of carving wax moulds and going on to coat the moulds in layers of ceramic shell, due to be cast in bronze this Thursday. Keep your eyes peeled for the results!
