Join us for this wonderful intro to sand casting - it is a great opportunity to make some gorgeous lasting jewellery gifts for yourself or your loved ones!

Students are shown the ancient technique of sand casting, using a wax to make a simple hard model or found objects such as buttons or simple small forms - create your simple 2-part mould and melt and pour sterling silver, copper, bronze or shibuichi (a mix of silver and copper) to cast into the sand.

The model you have made or found enables you to make multiple pours possible, until you either get the result you are after or to create multiple pieces. This is a fun process for those who just want to try their hand at it, or a very useful low-tech process for those who are making jewellery into a career or creative activity.

Course cost excludes metal, students can expect to use $60 - $80 worth of silver or $20 - $30 of copper.

PLEASE NOTE:
We require anyone entering our premises to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and we will need you to email us a copy of your pass.
