Sandcasting in Silver with Visiting Artists David & Andrea Peterson #1068

Explore the powerful possibilities that sandcasting brings to work in jewelry and small sculpture! Those unfamiliar with sandcasting will be surprised by how quickly one can move from concept to finished casting; often less than an hour. Unlike other casting methods, sandcasting does not result in the loss of the original wax model, so multiple castings are possible. Sandcasting also requires little in the way of specialized equipment, making it an ideal addition to any small studio or home-based workshop. In fact, most of the necessary tools can be made DIY in the studio (as you will see!). Experienced metalsmiths will discover an array of variations and innovations to inform their work, while less experienced makers will discover a unique, low-tech method for producing jewelry and small objects in silver, bronze, pewter, and even aluminum.

Reductive Woodblock Printing with Visiting Artist Casey Neumann #1072

Create a multi color relief print using just one woodblock! Reductive carving and printing involve printing a base color, carving out areas that are to remain this color, printing this reduced area (in a new color) over the initial impression, and so on. Precise registration techniques will also be covered. Editioning (pulling multiple prints of the same image) is an essential component of this process, and students will leave with a set of prints that can be distributed amongst friends, family, and possibly exhibition spaces. This accessible and innovative technique acts as a great introduction to the printmaking medium, and can push veteran printmakers into new and exciting territory as well!
