Bronze casting, the lost wax method, artistic casting, are all terms used to describe the casting of works of sculpture in bronze. This method was first implemented in around the 6th century BC and remains essentially unchanged to this day. From the first moment it contributed to the liberation of the sculptural composition and the artistic imagination, made the plastic process come to life and, generally, arrived to cover and offer solutions to the demands of art and society. Throughout the history of sculpture, artistic casting has followed a parallel course and the two arts have helped and been assisted by the other. Plaster mold making and toreutics were also inextricably linked to bronze casting and have since formed part of a single process. The nature of the materials, the history and their role in the evolution of art, the techniques and process of artistic casting are the object of the plaster mold making-bronze sculpture workshop. The workshop’s program brings together the history and experiences of the past but is also fully adapted to today’s conditions and demands.

The bronze used by the workshop is kintly sponsored by the Ελληνικό Ινστιτούτο Ανάπτυξης Χαλκού and the ΑΝΑΜΕΤ Α.Ε
