Metal Casting Workshop
Metal Casting and Sand Molds Workshop

Saturday, October 29th, 2016 10am – 2 pm

Shop Lead: John Wojtulewicz

Are you ready to melt metals?? Spokane Create will have a Metal Casting workshop October 29th, 2016. John will take you through the process of making sand molds, safely melting metals in an electric kiln and of course the pouring of molten metal. The class will begin with a coaster of the Spokane Create Logo that will be used to make a two part sand mold. This mold will then be filled with aluminum and finishing techniques will be discussed. The second part of the workshop we will work with you to create a sand mold of something you have brought to be cast.

Everything we will be working with is presumed to be hot so please dress appropriately. Long pants and no open toed shoes are required (preferably boots). If you have welding gloves and safety glasses please bring them but they are not required.

We will supply all the tools necessary for the class all you need is a willingness to learn. If you’d like to bring in a piece for possible casting in the second half we’ll be happy to help. Complex shapes can be difficult to cast so please keep the pieces fairly simple.

Space is limited to 10 people.
Cost is $25 per person. All proceeds go to Spokane CREATE!
