Ring Out, Wild Bells - Creetown Plays with Fire
Exciting things are happening in Creetown......
We have teamed up with , Roddie Mathieson who runs The MobileFoundry, to create a bronze bell, which will form the centrepiece of the sculpture. This is taking place next Saturday and will be open for everyone to come and witness.
“This is an opportunity to see the casting process in action,” says Roddie, “We will make moulds of the bell and clapper and pour them as part of a public demonstration. It is quite a spectacle and really exciting to watch.”
We will also be holding an all day casting session at Creetown Primary school for pupils to get a chance to try their hand at the casting process. They will use moulds to make sculptures and will then use a charcoal furnace with bellows to cast them.
Exciting events are unfolding next week, look forward to seeing everyone there!
