Adults – no experience necessary
January 5, 2019 10am – 2pm
The Metal Shoppe – 2919 Como Avenue SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414
New Year’s is a time to cleanse, renew, and rewire to bring in the new – life patterns, visions and luck! This metal casting transformational ritual conveys an act in which we join the metaphysical with the physical and call spirit into our material lives with the creation of a personal cast metal sculpture, coin or jewelry. Cast your 2019 vision into metal and carry it with you into the new year!
In this all hands-on, creative and exciting class you will carve an original design (or choose from a selection of symbols and imagery) into a cuttlefish bone or a plaster mold to create negative space. That space is filled with lead-free pewter to create your original metal casting. You pour the metal into your mold, do finishing work with hand files, power tools and wire brushes and colored inks are optional. Handstamp a word of intention and mount your sculpture on metal/wood/stone base, affix jewelry/keychain hardware or put it in your pocket.
