Have you ever watched someone making a sword in the movies and thought it looked too cool for school? If so, this class is for you! Join us in Houston for a 4 hour class (9-1:00), where you'll choose a wood blank cut in one of several Bronze Age designs, then use power tools to shape it into your own unique sword. In the second half of class, you'll get your hands dirty making a sand cast of the wooden original, and then watch as we pour an exact copy of it in molten aluminum! When they are finished, wrap the handles in leather and take both the wood and metal swords home! $85

Check it out--we cast a sword with Tania Ortega on the FOX 7 morning show!

And few months ago we cast a bronze sword with youtube giant Rooster Teeth and it has gone viral!https://youtu.be/PKsoch0DNfc


Or see Sword Casting Guys FB page to see pictures and read raves from happy customers. The class grew out of a desire to make Ancient Civ class more hands on, and so is taught very interactively, with lots of science, history, and art connections being explored.Space is limited to 18, and the class usually sells out, so strike while the iron is hot! Note: for safety, swords are not sharpened to a cutting edge in class.

FAQs

Is there a minimum age requirement to take the class?

Kids as young as 8 can take the class as long as they have an adult to help them. And you wouldn't be alone--it is common to have almost as many adults as kids come to experience this amazing process!


How many tickets do I need?

The cost of the class is per sword cast, not per participant, so it depends if mom or dad want to cast their own sword. There is a limited number of sibling discounts for 2 or more ticket purchases per family.


I like to do woodworking--can I make a sword ahead of time and bring it to class to cast?

Yes, some of the coolest swords we've seen have come along this way. If you want to try this, email me for dimensions and a few sword design rules of thumb.


Can adults come without a kid?

Sure!
