This workshop is part of Menlo Park’s Aluminum Casting Series
In this workshop, you will make your own aluminum sculpture using the ancient method of Lost Wax casting.
You will work with Sonja, our sculpture expert and all around highly talented artist, to model the wax into a sculpture masterpiece. You will then learn how to invest your model to create the lost wax casting. This workshop will be completed by the pouring of molten aluminum into the cast.
This workshop takes place over two days as Part 1 and Part 2, totalling five hours.
You are signing up for Part 2 of the workshop: pour molten aluminum. **Do not sign up for this class unless you have already attended Cast an Aluminum Sculpture - Part 1!**
If you are not available for Part 2, you can pick up your sculpture after the completion of Cast an Aluminum Sculpture - Part 2.
For your safety, wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt made of natural fibers for this class. And remember: You must ALWAYS wear closed-toed shoes while at TechShop.
This is not a Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class. Workshops utilize TechShop’s equipment, and all shop rules still apply – unless you have passed the required safety course(s), your instructor will assist you on the machine.
