Sword Casting Guy

Experience the Bronze Age by casting a sword from molten metal!

Bronze Sword Casting Class

So why let the kids have all the fun? People often ask if I do bronze classes, and the answer is yes!  Bronze melts at almost 2000° F, so it requires a hotter foundry and different tools than our aluminum class, but the process is much the  same. Over the course of three evening classes from 7-10 pm, you’ll choose a Bronze Age sword design from our collection of masters and make a careful sand cast to be poured in molten bronze. Next, you’ll spend a few hours sanding the swords to a smooth finish using a combination of power sanders and hand sanding. Finally, you’ll choose a hardwood handle and learn to set brass rivets using a hammer and anvil.  Our bronze classes produce high end swords that will hold an honored position in your sword collection. $275 includes all materials. Class size is limited to 10, so grab a friend and strike while the iron is hot.  Classes meet from 7-10 pm Wednesday-Friday or 9-6pm on Saturday by special arrangement.  Buy tickets for one of our upcoming classes here.

Check it out–last summer we made a bronze sword with reporter Tania Ortega on the FOX 7 Morning show. See a preview of our class here.
