10gram Challenge

Milwyn has teamed up with the Royal Society of Sculptors to invite their members and other invited artists to take part in the 10gram Challenge

The challenge is being launched to coincide with International Sculpture Day on Saturday 25th April 2020.

About the 10gram Challenge

The challenge is to produce a piece of sculpture or object from a 10 gram piece of supplied wax to be direct cast into bronze.

The subject and style can be anything the artist feels like making during this period of isolation.

The finished bronzes will be shown at Dora House later in 2020.

How to take part

The challenge is open to members of the Royal Society of Sculptors and other invited artists. There is no charge for the casting and materials.

Please email 10gram@milwyn.co.uk to register your interest.

Participating artists will be sent a free pack containing two 10 gram bits of wax. They will also be provided with bronze wire and wood mixing sticks to be used as armature or supports. Full instructions will be provided within the pack.

A return form and addressed box will be provided for returning the sculpture to foundry. Participants will be asked to return their object to be cast by Monday 29th June 2020.
