We will be learning how to turn items such as newspapers, water bottles, DVDs, and other common items into different jewelry components. At the end of the week, each participant will be challenged to create a piece of jewelry using their new skills.

Introduction to Metal Casting
with Alan Shelton
Humans have been casting metal for aroud 6000 years. A copper frog is the oldest existing casting currently known; it is estimated that it was made in 3200 BC in Mesopotami. Modern casting can be much more complex, but it doesn't have to be.
In this 5-day program, students will learn about metal casting as an art form. Students will create molds that will be included in Mixxer's Night of Fire - Iron Pour event in September, plus make a metal casting to take home that week.
This program is for students in grades 9 thru 12 only.
