Sandcasting Workshop




Sat October 21


About the Course

Learn this simple and cost effective method to reproduce existing objects in metal

(pewter). Objects such as shells, twigs, seed pods, small toys, buttons, pre-existing

jewellery or items made from polymer clay, wood, plastic etc can be transferred to metal.

You will learn how to make a two part mould using oil sand to cast one or two objects

simultaneously. Those with some previous knowledge may wish to alter the mould by

adding texture, a bail and/or flattening the reverse of the master object. You will have the

opportunity to create one or two metal castings.

All tools, equipment and 15g metal (pewter) are included in the fee.

You may bring (scrap) silver if you wish to use this metal
