Art Foundry

In the Art Foundry, the production of art castings in bronze, aluminum, brass, nickel silver, iron, and stainless steel is taught. This is done through practical work on negative molds and wax models, by brushing, spinning out and retouching, by embedding the wax models in a fireproof mold as well as annealing, casting, chasing, and patinating. There is also the opportunity to get information about sand casting.

The artistic projects are supervised in cooperation with three foundries in the nearby area.

Zur Zeit stehen für die Kunstgießerei keine besonderen Termine oder Veranstaltungen an.
