Make Eindhoven has a fully equipped metal foundry. You can mainly work with 2 techniques for casting bronze and aluminum: çire perdue and sand casting. We also offer possibilities for different pre- and post-processing techniques. If you want to work with a different technique, please discuss this with one of our advisors. If we cannot help you with this, we might know an alternative.

Process
Our workshops are designed to work independently if possible. There is no need to master techniques beforehand. Experienced advisors give instructions on techniques, safety and tools. They share their knowledge with you and give you support where needed. Together with you, we face the experiment to bring your idea to life.

You pay per part of the day for use of the workshop. This includes use of space, a number of tools and guidance from our advisors. You pay separately for certain tools, our ovens and consumables.

Get to work
Every technique has its own timeline. We therefore ask you to contact us in time, to make sure we have enough time to realize your ideas. Plan a meeting here, to see what we can do for you.

Below you find more information on techniques, facilities and technical details, as well as a pricelist that can be downloaded. Prices for materials can be requested at the workshop.
