Monday Makers – Hot Metal Pour
September 5, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$50
This series will meet 2 times: Monday night Sept. 5 from 5pm-7pm and again on Sunday Sep. 11 during the Fall Arts Festival at JSP (anytime between 11am-6pm).
Fun for all skill levels, no experience needed. All materials provided as part of the class fee.
Explore metal casting and create your own relief sculpture during our aluminum pour at the Fall Arts Festival.
On the first class night, you will develop a design and learn carving skills to bring your design into 3 dimensions by scratching your design into a sand mold. We will be using drawing skills, imagination and inspiration from the nature and sculptures available at the park. You may also come with sketches or ideas for your design in mind, but that is not necessary.
Our second class “meeting” will be during the Fall Arts Festival at JSP on Sunday, Sep. 11. You may arrive with your mold at any time during the event (11am-6pm) to get your mold poured by the crew from Sculpture Trails who run the metal casting event at JSP. You will learn from them about the pouring procedure and finishing your aluminum sculpture, which you will get to take home that day. This is not a formally scheduled “class” as you may come and go as you like, stay as long as you like, you could even create another sand mold if you want to ($30 each the day of the event).
Instructor: Melanie VanHouten
Price: $50 total (includes both classes and materials, and waives the parking fee during the festival Sep. 11)
