Aluminum sand casting involves packing the sand around an object, removing the object, pouring in molten metal, and cleaning up the final piece. Use this technique to make door/drawer pulls, a door knocker, trivet, or other decorative metal object for your home. Instructors from Stonybrook Fine Arts will guide you through the process. Participants should bring a simplistic one- or two-sided object to form the mold, or choose one of ours. Workshop will be held at Stonybrook Fine Arts, 24 Porter Street, Jamaica Plain.
