SCRAP SAND CASTING

Registration opens January 1st

This workshop meets Saturday, August 29, 2020, 9:00 am - 5:30 pm each day

(lunch break suggested 12noon-2pm each day)

 

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, sand casting gives new life to old, unused, or broken pieces of metal clay. Students will select either a premade mold or create one from polymer clay, melt scrap metal clay in a crucible, and then pour the molten metal into a prepared flask to create a new jewelry component. We will spend the morning casting, and the afternoon fabricating jewelry with our favorite component. Up to three pieces may be created as time allows. Jewelry fabrication includes soldering, stone setting, and finishing.

 

Registration fee: $150

A kit fee of $25 will be collected by the instructor during the workshop. Kit fee includes all required embellishments but does not include scrap metal clay. Soldering experience is recommended, but adventurous beginners are welcome.
