Cast Metal Small Sculpture, Amulets and Jewelry
February 18, 2019, 10am – 2pm – NO SCHOOL PRESIDENTS DAY
The Metal Shoppe – 2919 Como Avenue SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414
In this hands on, creative and exciting class of cast metal, learners carve original design into cuttlefish bone or a plaster mold to create negative space. That space is filled with lead-free pewter to create their original casting. Learners have the option to pour the metal into their own mold. Hand files and wire brushes are used to smooth and clean their castings and inks are optional. Learners can mount their sculptures on metal/wood/stone bases or affix jewelry/keychain hardware.
