Alchemy: A Casting Intensive

OAK 234
Instructor: Ellen Babcock
Sat. & Sun., 9 a.m.–5 p.m., March 14, 15, 21 & 22 4 sessions. $300 (plus $80 lab fee payable at registration)

This two-weekend intensive is a rigorous introduction to a wide variety of moldmaking and casting methods. Participants receive instruction in quick-setting, detail-capturing silicone, and latex-rubber molds, plaster-piece molds, alginate molds, and moldmaking directly from the body, along with an overview of casting methods for materials such as wax, plaster, paper, latex, soap, plaster, and clay.

Lab fee covers some rubber, plaster, cement, plastic, wax, and other miscellaneous supplies.

Metal Casting

OAK 232
Instructor: John Poole
Tues. & Thurs., 6:30–9:30 p.m., March 31–April 30
10 sessions. $300 (plus $35 materials fee payable to instructor at first session).

Come explore the process of casting. While focusing on traditional bronze/aluminum casting using the investment and sand processes, students also investigate nontraditional methods and materials. Participants learn direct working of wax- and mold-making (plaster and rubber), as well as metalworking techniques (TIG welding and chasing) through the final patination of finished metal pieces. An ideal course for those first-time casting enthusiasts, as well as those who are more experienced.

Materials fee covers wax, plaster, and sand. Cost of bronze/aluminum extra.
