In this 2 session (2 hours each) class, students will learn how to do gravity pour casting (no centrifugal casting machine required). We will discover the importance of spruces and vents. Learn to avoid undercuts in sand casting and compensate for the various shrinkages in metals. These processes are suitable for making small objects, such as charms, pendants, rings or components of larger pieces. We will be casting two items out of bronze. Students can provide their own metal if they wish to use a different metal.
