Danny Wade is coming back to The Makery and he’s bringing an expanded version of his popular tufa casting workshop with him! We’ll learn what makes tufa the perfect material for low-tech casting and the best ways to get the most out of its unique texture. Then we’ll carve our own designs into the material and learn how to prepare it for casting for optimal results. Danny will show us two different methods of melting and pouring our metal, and we’ll talk about best practices for cleaning and finishing our designs.
This is a full day of instruction with plenty of time to do two different pieces, and it’s perfect for all levels of makers, even if you’ve never made jewelry before. And since the use of all tools and materials is included in your fee, all you have to do is show up and have fun!
