Learn about small scale metal casting for sculpture or jewelry. You will design and create wax models for the centrifugal casting process and hand pouring techniques. Once your model is complete, we will cast it in class, clean it up, and finish the surface. All tools and materials will be provided for your project. Additional information covered will include: taking molds from existing objects (rubber /plaster), sand casting, direct pour processes, creating stone settings in wax, finishing, problem solving, and small-scale production. This is a hands-on workshop where you will be able to produce several finished pieces of jewelry, and or sculptural, and functional objects. This class can accommodate all skill levels and may be repeated.
