Come learn the basics of Sand casting. Get hands on experience and dirty hands! We will be casting small items supplied by the instructor, and you will get to take something home with you! Students will get the basics of making a two-part sand mould. Tools and terms will be discussed. Students will learn about 'draft' and parting lines. I will go over the basic parts of a two part mould and demonstrate the steps in making an oil sand based 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.
