Manchester International Festival
Sam Collins, is doing some research for the Manchester International Festival into foundries in the Lancashire area.
The Festival is currently talking to an American artist about a project for the next Manchester International Festival in July 2009.
As part of the project the artist would like to cast a bronze sculpture. The sculpture is still in its design stage, but it will be approximately 3 feet x 3 feet x 6 feet in size.
As the festival is Manchester based they would like to be able to do this in the local Manchester area. Ideally they are looking for somewhere within approximately 1 hours drive from Manchester itself, although at this stage they are willing to look slightly further afield if need be.
He is currently trying to gather a list of foundries in the area that could cast a bronze sculpture of this size, with the hope of bringing the artist to Manchester in the coming months to discuss the project further.
He would be very grateful if for suggestions of foundries in the area. If anyone can help then please contact Head Office for Sam''s contact details or more information.
