Cast your own bronze axe head, with James Dilley at Brora Heritage Centre (Book early as there are limited places: 10am – 4pm).
Great event for anyone over 16 years of age.
James will show you how to prepare a mould, before working the leather bellows on the charcoal-fuelled furnace to melt copper and tin. You will then cast the liquid metal into your prepared moulds to produce a replica Bronze Age palstave axe head to take home at the end of the day.
You can then decorate the axe, and finish it by filing off the casting flash and start cleaning its surfaces and then take your beautiful axe home. All materials provided. Chargeable event.
