Many household items make for amazing cast objects. This workshop lets you take these everyday goods and create castings in bronze that can then be finished out for keepsakes or jewelry. This type of casting does not create an exact replica of the materials, but rather, the liquid metal around the items “freezes” as it is poured and allows for exciting reliefs of the spaces in between. The result is exhilarating since you never know what you will get, and the metal can always be melted and used again.
