This exciting course will introduce you to the experimental silver casting technique to create original designs. You will begin the process by a casting process is know as Delft Casting where an object is pressed into sand to create an impression. Molten silver is poured into the impression and once cooled a silver piece is removed from the sand and is ready to be finished and polished. This casting process is ideal for casting very detailed jewellery pieces and in addition to using a wax jewellery piece you can use a number of found objects to cast including metal objects, small sea shells, bones, small plastic object, buttons, sweets etc.
In addition to the technique you will have a change to experiment with other types of casting process, including water casting, casting in grains and stones to great unusual pieces.
Throughout this course you will have many opportunities to experiment with molten metal not only in the casting process, but by melting metal and sculpting it into shapes. This is an exciting process that produces excellent results.
