WKS820: Cast an Aluminum Sculpture - Lost Wax Technique - Part 2
Class Number 702-24752

This workshop is part of Menlo Park’s Aluminum Casting Series

In this workshop, you will make your own aluminum sculpture using the ancient method of lost wax casting.

You will work with Sonja, our sculpture expert and all around highly talented artist, to model the wax into a sculpture masterpiece. You will then learn how to invest your model to create the lost wax casting. This workshop will be completed by the pouring of molten aluminum into the cast.

This workshop takes place over two days, one week apart, as Part 1 and Part 2, totaling five hours.

Please note: Pricing is for one 30-cubic-inch sculpture. Additional casting requires purchase of additional workshop seats.

You are signing up for Part 2 of the workshop: pour molten aluminum.

*Do not sign up for this class unless you have already attended Cast an Aluminum Sculpture - Part 1!*

If you are not available for Part 2, you can pick up your sculpture after the completion of Cast an Aluminum Sculpture - Part 2.

For your safety, wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt made of natural
