About This Activity

Come learn the more advanced techniques of Sand casting. Get hands on experience and dirty hands! We will be working on two part molds, picking where parting lines should be, and casting small items supplied by the instructor or brought by the students, and you will get to take something home with you! Students will get more advanced techniques of making a multi-part sand mould. Tools and terms will be discussed. Students will learn about 'draft' and parting lines. I will go over the ideas of multi-part sand moulds and demonstrate the ‘bedding in’ of objects to make a full 3D two part mould. After that students will get to make their own moulds. Safety around the foundry will be discussed and enforced. Once the metal is melted and the students moulds are ready I will pour into the moulds and after cool down, the castings will be shaken out and cleaned up. Close toe shoes and long pants required, Long sleeve shirts recommended.
