We still have some spaces in our January workshops, with the first batch coming up this weekend, so if you are interested please contact us ASAP!

The Aluminum Casting Workshop is a 7 hour workshop where you will learn how to make a simple 2 part Greensand mold of a pattern and then how to cast the piece in aluminum. Each participant does the entire process from start to finish and will have a finished piece to take home with them at the end of class. No prior experience is necessary.
