Thank you for your interest, but at this time, due to COVID-19, we are not holding any classes in our Foundry, but please stay tuned and sign up for our email newsletter for more updates. See below for a description of our Bronze Casting Workshop which we will hopefully start back up again soon!

Create your own cast bronze BMC memorabilia! In this class participants will be shown how to make basic 2-part molds using what is called “green” sand. Green sand is one of the oldest foundry molding processes and is the same method navy repair ships used to use. Historically the navy has had repair ships with small foundries on board. The knowledgeable molders and casters had numerous wooden patterns of boat parts they would use to create new parts for ships in need of repair out on the water.

Participants in this one-day workshop will be given premade patterns of BMC memorabilia and be shown how to take foundry molds off of them. Each student will be allowed to take home their own castings!

You can show up to this class with no tools or thoughts on what you might want to create. All of that will be given to you.

Take this class if you want some hands-on experience casting bronze and a cool token representing a unique experience!
