Explore this ancient process of casting to create unique and individualized jewelry-scale objects in bronze or silver. The class will begin with a basic project and then allow for independently focused projects for the remainder of the term. Class demonstrations will depend on the needs of individual projects in addition to the basics—model-making, setting sprues, preparing the model in the flask, burning out the wax, casting the molten metal, and surface finishing. No previous metal experience required. Includes wax, casting materials, and bronze casting grain. Student wishing to work on individual projects in other metals will need to order casting grain. See *Metals Supplies Note.
*Metals Supplies Note: Tuition for metals classes covers basic studio supplies, chemicals, and access to tools and equipment. Some classes include a limited supply kit unless otherwise noted. Students should anticipate additional fees for other tools, metal, and findings for their samples or projects. Please see website for specific supply list.
