What we're about
Ever watched a video about Bronze Age metal working and thought it looked too cool for school? If so, this group is for you! You'll start by choosing a wooden blank cut in one of several Bronze Age designs, then finishing it using power tools and hand sanding. In the second half of class, you'll get your hands dirty making a sand cast of the wooden original, then watch as we pour an exact copy of it in molten aluminum! When it is finished, they wrap the handle in leather and take it home! The fee is $85 per sword casting, not per participant, so you're welcome to bring a friend.

This started out as a class for kids, but we've had a lot of adults take the class for themselves as well, so it is now an all ages event. There is no lower age limit, but due to the challenge level of this activity, participants 7 or younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who will assist them. And you wouldn't be alone--it is common to have almost as many parents as kids attend this class to experience this amazing process.
