Daytime

In this class you will learn about the ancient process of sandcasting. The mould is made from sand, and small objects can be pushed into the sand and removed so that a cavity is made. Into this cavity, silver is melted and poured so that you will end with a replica of the object you pushed in. Finally you will learn how to finish the silver cast into jewellery or small objects.

Choosing the perfect object for sand casting is important. You are encouraged to bring your own objects although Made by Ore can also provide some. The size of the object is also important. 10g of silver is included in the cost of the class, however should you wish to buy more included up to 10g of silver you can purchase on the day at trade price.

To give you some ideas - small shells or an acorn, and old coin or a ring, an earring or a lego man.... these would all be suitable objects because they are hard enough to be pushed into sand and small enough to be 10g silver or less!

During the class you will have the opportunity to make up to two casts, although you may choose to spend more time finishing your objects into pieces of jewellery.

The class is small, with only four students each time.

Notes

Please bring a variety of small objects which you believe could be good for casting. If you need glasses for reading, you will likely need them for jewellery making too. At certain times during the class you will be asked to tie your hair back and tuck loose clothing in so please bring a hair tie if its long. You must always wear shoes that cover your toes even in summer. The studio can be dusty so please don't wear your best!
