How bells are made at the Royal Eijsbouts bell foundry

At the Royal Eijsbouts bell foundry in Asten, Netherlands, the art of bronze bell making or bellfounding is based on 1,000 year old techniques that include using sand and molten wax.

Watch craftsmen sculpt the inner and outer moulds, pour the liquid bronze, and then fine tune the bell sounds in this clip from Discovery’s How Do They Do It.
