We offer regular courses in jewelery making, bronze casting, wickerwork and other handicrafts.
The casting course is held in the premises of sculptor Jens Galschiøt's workshop. Here we have set up a professional foundry school, where all the necessary machines and expertise are available.
The art school offers 5-day courses in casting jewelry and sculptures.
After the course, you can bring your own art piece home.
The course is for both beginners and experienced. The mix of beginners and practitioners we see as a great source of inspiration for both parties. Even beginner can start working after some quick instructions.
During the course you will go through all the phases of the manufacturing process with the technique "cire perdue", which includes:
Preparation for course
Many participators make wax sculptors and jewelery at home in order to use the course exclusively to cast and complete them. It is therefore a great advantage to pass by Gallery Galschiot and get some wax to take home. That way you have better time to let your creativity run free.
In the two schools, some fantastically beautiful floors in polished marble and granite have been laid. In the back area of the schools you can see a large mosaic of a Mexican snake of 10 x 2 meters made of thousands of marble and granite pieces. This mosaic is made by one of Galschiøt's students - Marianne - and the Mexican painter Rey Morales.
Gallery Galschiot, Banevænget 22, 5270 Odense N. Denmark

The course is held over 5 days and costs DKK 2,275 excl. materials (material prices are shown bellow)
To give the course participants the opportunity to produce many topics within the 5 days of the course, we have chosen to have a fixed material price, which includes the use of tools, plaster, evacuation, machines, polishes, metals, castings, etc.
Items up to 50g = 2 kr. gram
Topics from 51g - 300g = 1 kr. gram
Items from 301g onwards = 0.75 kr. pr. gram
The daily price for silver (our purchase price) + 2 kr. per. gram.
For bronze the price is calculated per. gram on cast and finished item (thus not paid for waste etc.). For silver, the price is calculated by cutting items after casting. Calculation is done per topic and NOT OVERALL.
