In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of pewter casting processes from start to finish. Join Dylan Collins and begin with the design and fabrication of various small-scale, nature-inspired casting molds. Molten metal will then be poured into participants’ molds, followed by the use of chemical patinas to create rich, lustrous finishes on the final ornaments. Ages 12 and up. $25 for WVBG members, $35 for non-members.
Class sizes are limited and pre-registration is required. Registrants will receive further instructions via email prior to the event. Register today at www.wvbg.org.
