One of the artisans in my SCA Barony offered to teach a bronze casting class in early November. His offer was to cast either an early or later-period sword pommel, but then also offered that students could cast another reasonably flat object if they wouldn’t use a pommel.

This post will share photos and some information from that class… though some of the insights from our instructor I also shared in the previous indigo-related posts!
