Learn how to cast silver and make jewelry!
Casting goes as far back in time as the Bronze Age and not much has changed. Metal is heated up to melting temperature then poured into molds containing negatives of what was to be cast. For ages jewelry was made this very way. In this class students will follow this tradition in the completion of a ring. Students will design a ring then make a mold so that it can be cast in silver. Students will then proceed with the cleaning and the polishing of their piece. No previous knowledge is necessary to take this class.
