Ever wonder what to do with all of those leftover soda cans? In this class we will be making our very own backyard mini metal foundries. We will all practice using our foundries by first making our own aluminum ingots for quick and easy melting. Students will either carve and sculpt original foam objects to cast in aluminum. Students will learn how to prepare their foam objects to cast in the burnout sand casting method, how to safely pour molten metal, and how to polish their final projects to a shine. This class is designed for beginners, so everyone is welcome. For safety reasons while casting all students must wear leather or closed-toe shoes. Please note: enrollment for this course is limited to 8 students
