Metal Casting with Sand Molds for Beginners


Classes for Adults / Art & Music -
Summer 2022 - Adult

The ancient art of sand casting can be used to create objects or art with bronze or aluminum. Design and create your door/drawer handle, light switch/door-bell plate or wall hook with plasticine clay, found objects, or a wood/foam pattern. Choose bronze or aluminum to pour your mold, and learn how to clean and treat your casting. $5.00 per pound of finished metal will be assessed at class and is payable to the instructor.


Participants are required to bring and wear a face mask that covers their nose and mouth while at class. Gloves will be made available, and all tools and work-spaces will be sanitized.

Class is at the WOW Mobile Metal Lab - an MTC bus turned metal casting workshop on wheels - located at the Casket Arts Carriage House. Parts of class will be outside.
