Mold Making and Pewter Casting Workshop
with Jackie Kaufman
Date: August 20-21, 2022
Time: 11a.m. - 2 p.m.
Class Fee: $120 includes Beach Art Center Fee
In this 2 day workshop we will explore the world of pewter casting by creating 2 small figures (2 - 3 inches) using found objects, wax and small plastic toys. On day 1 we will be cutting the small objects and toys apart and putting them together in unique ways to create a unique small sculpture. We will then make rubber molds of the objects. On day 2 we will learn how to cut open the molds, casting the pewter, and finishing the pieces.
You will leave with 2 completed pewter sculptures and 2 reusable rubber molds that you will be able to make more pieces with, using techniques you have learned in this workshop.
Once you know this process, you can create your own buttons, pins, focal pieces, purse handles, legs, jewelry pieces. This will get you thinking about how you can can incorporate unique pewter pieces into your work.
This workshop will include most supplies.
Please bring any small plastic objects to use that can be cut apart like small toys. (The teacher will supply some different options)
Reading glasses if you need them. There will be small work.
