Join us for this wonderful intro to sand casting spaced over two Sundays.
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 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 is $245 and excludes metal, students can expect to use $60 - $80 worth of silver or $20 - $30 of copper.
Experiment on your first day learning the techniques, then take home some jeweller's wax to carve at home during the week. When you come back the next Sunday you will be able to focus on creating a beautiful finished piece to take home.
Simple projects like cast rings, pendants, cufflinks or earrings are very achievable.
