Description: This introduction workshop offers a unique opportunity to learn the basics process of beginner small-scale casting. The workshop will begin with using simple household items such as water, straw and even beans to pour molting metal into! The result castings can then be transformed into a ring or pair of earrings. The second part of the class will focus on cuttlefish and delft or sand casting. Delft clay is a reusable molding material that provides quick results and helps to retain intricate details. Feel free to bring in a variety of small items such as plastic toys, keys and buttons you may want to try to delft cast! While the metals studio is equipped with exhaust vents please note that during this workshop we will be using organic materials that smell as a by-product during the casting process. Class is limited to 8 students. Beginners are welcome! A 30-minute lunch break will be included during this workshop. Materials fee covers cost of bronze (enough for 2 pours/projects) but does not included sterling silver. Sterling and extra bronze will be available for purchase during this workshop, please remember to bring in cash or personal checks (no credit cards). Cost varies depending on project scale as well as current precious metal market price but each student should expect to pay up to or over $40 for sterling silver casting grain. Students may also bring in their clean (no solder) sterling silver scrap metal.
