PEWTER CASTING

Cast a small spoon, star, or crucifix from pewter!  Mark Pietz and Skyler Johnson will show students how to create their own molds from body filler and, under the supervision of the instructor, melt and pour pewter into their molds.  The remainder of class time will be in finishing the raw casting by   filing, sanding and polishing.  Because of the primitive technique, some minor flaws in the casting can be expected.  Several attempts will be made to obtain an acceptable casting.  For safety reasons, students must wear shoes during the actual casting process — No exceptions.  Students will prepare their molds on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and cast in the afternoon.  Finishing work on Thursday and Friday.  All materials provided.  Age 16+.

Monday-Wednesday — Preparation/Casting||Thursday-Friday — Finishing.  Cost $30.
