Metal Casting: A Digital Craft Approach

Learn to create metal multiples by combining digital fabrication processes with traditional metal casting processes. Workshop participants will learn how to utilize digital fabrication tools such as a laser cutter, a 3D printer, and a CNC router to create molds or patterns for small scale casting for jewelry and object making. Workshop participants will then cast objects using gravity, vacuum, and centrifugal casting.

Materials Fees for this workshop are estimated to be between $85-120. This does not include materials that may need to be purchased by the student prior to the workshop.
