Join us at Stonybrook Fine Arts for JP Open studios! Saturday (9/23) and Sunday (9/24), from 11am-6pm the studio will be displaying artists' work, demonstrating metal pillow inflating, and casting aluminum! One of our welding instructors will demonstrate how to inflate two sheets of metal into a pillow through welding and heating methods. Meanwhile, we'll be pouring aluminum into "scratch blocks" that you can carve into any design you like. The "scratch blocks" are small resin-bonded sand molds that can be carved with a variety of metal tools, which we'll supply. The fee for creating your own cast aluminum sculpture is $15, but watching us pour the 1100° metal is free!
Stop by to see, buy, or learn about metal sculpture! Refreshments will be available inside.
Metal casting, stonecarving, jewelry making, mold making, and figure sculpture workshops are available. Custom workshops are available as well, including: wedding ring workshops, teen welding intensives, and more!
