The class covers the basics of molding and casting. Study the principals of “draft” while reproducing an object which we provide. Create single objects using clay, wax, and plaster. Later, cast more complicated forms, your own original art or other objects which you provide. Learn to prepare waxes to cast in aluminum or bronze, producing pieces for a fraction of the standard foundry fee.
Mold Making is a great pre-requisite to foundry, but not required. Some materials will be provided. Larger scale projects will have additional materials fee. This class does not include the time to create your object.
Class Time: Fridays (1 pm-4 pm or 6pm-9pm), from 1/12-3/16.
Metal casting, welding, jewelry making, stone carving, and figure sculpture workshops are available. Custom workshops are available as well, including: wedding ring workshops, teen welding intensives, and more!
