Quick Casting

April Wood | Sunday June 25 | 1:00 - 4:00pm

In this workshop, participants will explore the processes of mold-making & casting to create a unique brooch or pendant that has interesting tactile elements. Casting, in metal and other materials, is a technique that has been used throughout the ages in jewelry production and sculpture. Participants will learn to make a quick mold, or impression, from supplied pieces of costume jewelry. They will then cast silicone rubber into the mold, resulting in a flexible, fun replication of the original piece. The finished piece will be an object that both challenges ideas of preciousness and allows the wearer and observers to engage with the tactile elements of jewelry, two themes explored in the spring 2017 exhibition at the Baltimore Jewelry Center.

$30 (all materials provided)

This workshop is made possible by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council.
