Members Sand Casting Night
Sunday, May 26, 2019
Join your fellow Co-op members for a fun night to sand cast small objects in glass! If you've never done casting before, here's a great opportunity to try it out.
Bring a special memento or a small object that you think will look great in glass. Press it into wet sand, then watch the sand mold get filled with glass. Then it goes into the annealer for an overnight soak.
A few tips about objects for casting:
- Keep it small; no bigger than a baseball in mass.
- It will get dirty, so make sure you can clean it.
- Shallow objects work better than deep ones.
- Avoid undercuts (see graphic image).
The $20 + GST fee covers casting one object. If time permits you may be able to cast an additional object for an additional fee.
Bring a snack to share and something to drink.
