Class Description

 

Low tech casting is a technique of pouring molten silver over organic material.  We will use a combination of casting grains and scrap silver to create unique components to incorporate into your jewelry. After learning a casting technique each morning, students will design and create jewelry each afternoon.  We will do water casting, 3 ways; broom casting, bean, salt and cuttle fish.  Lab fee includes all consumables, 1 ounce of casting grain (more if silver goes down in cost) a bag of cz’s, tube settings, one cabochon and some miscellaneous sterling components.  Students should bring sterling and/or fine silver scrap or casting grain as well as wire/sheet/solder to work with.  I will have a selection available to purchase.  Students should be comfortable with a torch and have basic soldering knowledge
