ART SCHOOL

Art school at Jens Galschiøts workshop

At Jens Galschiøts workshop and gallery, you will find an art school, where we offer courses in casting sculptures and jewelry

About the course


Art school offers 5-day courses in casting jewelry and sculptures


After the course, you can bring your own artwork home.


The course is for both beginners and experienced. It is precisely the mix of beginners and practitioners that we experience as a great source of inspiration for both parties.


The casting course is held in the premises of sculptor Jens Galschiot's workshop. Here we have set up a professional foundry school where all the necessary machinery and expertise are available.


Even if you are a beginner, you will already be working with the art of your interest 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:


  • Modeling in wax
  • Setting up the wax placed in mold pipes
  • Plastering and evacuation
  • Waxing of plaster molds
  • Plaster burnout Vacuum casting in silver or bronze
  • Cleaning of plaster casts
  • Grinding, oxidizing, polishing, and finishing of jewelry and sculpture


Preparation for course

Many people make wax sculptors and jewelery from home 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 home with you. That way you have better time to let your creativity run free.

The course is held over 5 days and costs DKK 2,275 excl. materials (material prices are shown at the bottom)


Material Prices

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.


Bronze Casting:

Items up to 50g = 2 kr. gram

Topics from 51g - 300g = 1 kr. gram

Items from 301g onwards = 0.75 kr. pr. gram


Silver Casting:

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.
