Used for centuries, this intricate process and historic tradition of creating complex metal shapes and parts is in high demand today for both commercial and ornamental uses.
Focusing on exploring your personal expression in metal, we give you the necessary discipline and skills to be successful in the global metal marketplace. Our instructors show you how to design, draw and produce work in ferrous and non-ferrous metals through a variety of studio, forge and foundry demonstrations, discussions and exercises.
Your courses include
Aluminum Sand Casting
Drawing and Design for Metal Casting
Tool Safety (TIG welder, grinders, air tools)
With an emphasis on developing proper technique and using appropriate tools safely, you’ll learn how to design, sculpt, mold and cast in aluminum and bronze using sand and lost wax casting methods. Plus, you’ll get hands-on practice in studio production, casting sculptural forms and pouring molten metal as you design, create and develop molds and patterns for casting in our foundry room.
