with Jesse Bert
Virtual Two-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
April 11 & 18| Time: 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. ET 
 Start to finish, this class will offer a detailed approach with step-by-step information for learning the basics to Sand-casting small objects in metal. Understand how to best select master objects, and which tools to use. See how to prepare gates and vents, with special consideration for building a cleaner, crisper, more effective mold so that the metal flows best during the pour. The instructor will share a special formula to learn the casting weight of selected materials, and how much metal to use for each mold. After the pour, but before the class is over a basic demonstration will be provided about cleaning up and finishing options. Come to understand what an extremely useful, rapid, and versatile studio practice this technique can be, especially since master objects are never lost or damaged.
