        Register

        This guided open studio has a prerequisite. Please see below before you register.

        This learning opportunity is for those who have completed BARN’s Metal Casting in the Foundry class and would like time in the foundry with a skilled monitor team to guide and lend support where needed.

        Guided foundry time is for skill development and practice; it is not a formal class. It’s a great opportunity to improve your skills, share ideas, and pour molten metal. There’s much to learn in making a mold from single or multi-part patterns. Where to place gates and vents, or how big to make the risers to have sufficient metal to remain molten and fill voids as the cast metal cools. The best way to learn this stuff is hands-on practice, and these guided open studios are where you can do that.

        Note that the last half hour of this event will be for properly cleaning the spaces and reorganization.

        This event is currently limited to 4 participants. Spectators are welcome with all safety requirements observed.

        If you have questions about this event, please contact a member of the Foundry team or David Hays at metal.lead@BainbridgeBARN.org.

        Monitor Bios:

        Jeff Oens - is a widely renowned sculptor with his bronze artwork exhibited in prominent art collections and public displays across the United States and Canada. Jeff is best known for his outstanding wildlife sculptures, but his portfolio also includes human figures, mythical creatures, and other diverse subjects, ranging in size from miniature to monumental. Many of Jeff’s sculptures can be seen around the industrial park on Three Tree Lane.

        Frank Wurden - While getting his BS Electrical Engineering degree at University of Washington, Frank also obtained a BFA degree with emphasis in life drawing, sculpting and foundry art working with green sand, CO2 sand casting, investment casting, and ceramic shell casting. Sculpture materials were clay, foam, wood, or wax for the patterns, and casting in aluminum, bronze and stainless steel. Frank says it’s been many years since actually casting, so it’s great fun to get back into it! “I totally enjoy the entire process and look forward to helping other people do the same.”

        Mario Oblak - Mario honed his passion for casting metal with BFA (UofW) and MFA (Rhode Island School of Design) degrees in Sculpture. Creating, designing and building in different materials and mediums is a joy, but working in liquid metal is “it” for him. Mario feels “Casting is a magical process that requires patience, skill, labor and teamwork, with the results both satisfying and permanent.” By sharing his knowledge and experience, Mario wants to help others explore, learn, and develop skills so they can see their ideas come to life.
