Decorative Casting
Duration Cost
Five day block Monday/Friday

OR Five Saturdays




The Decorative course is aimed at the experienced leadworkers with the foundation skills in simple flat, hollow and decorative lead casting techniques. A sound knowledge of welding techniques is essential to allow students to fabricate and assemble the lead casting components.

Students will be able to create their own lead planters or hopper head will generally have the same overall dimensions, with each candidate being able to personalise their design work.

Please note, candidates who wish to purchase their completed piece of work will have to pay for the scrap lead that is used by weighing the item. The cost will depend on the scarp value on the day of completion.


Students will be shown how to create a pattern, before developing the art of casting molten lead.
