Casting | with Bill Harr
8/19/2019 - 8/25/2019
This class will teach beginner silver casting for beginner and intermediate silversmithing. The emphasis will be on production centrifugal casting, meaning techniques for high reliability. The class will teach centrifugal and vacuum casting, wax modeling, sprueing, investing, burnout, casting, finishing and polishing, rubber mold making and wax injection. Steam casting will be covered if there is interest. Waxes will be available, and students will learn to inject their own. We will not spend much time on wax model making, but students will have that opportunity. Students will learn to make cast silver embellishments for their silversmith pieces. Students may bring items they wish to make molds of.
