Cuttlefish Casting

Cuttlefish casting is a casting method that allows a participant of any skill level to participate in the metal casting process with immediate and exciting results. 

The bone of a cuttlefish, a type of cephalopod like a squid, is carved to create a mold. Participants may work together or in teams to create their pieces.

Molten metal is then poured into the cuttlefish mold resulting in a metal replica of the carving. After carving and casting, workshop participants will learn how to finish the cast metal and will leave the workshop with a finished object or piece of jewelry. No experience necessary.

This workshop is suited for groups of all sizes. Contact us at info@baltimorejewelrycenter.org for more details and to schedule your event.
