Join Manawatu jeweller Vaune Mason for this wonderful intro to sand casting!

The class will be held in Vaune's lovely rural studio location in Apiti. With a maximum of 5 students, this will be a wonderful creative experience and fantastic results.

You will be shown the ancient technique of sand casting, using a wax to make a simple hard model or found objects such as buttons or simple small forms - create your simple 2-part mould and melt and pour sterling silver, copper, bronze or shibuichi (a mix of silver and copper) to cast into the sand.

The model you have made or found enables you to make multiple pours possible, until you either get the result you are after or to create multiple pieces. This is a fun process for those who just want to try their hand at it, or a very useful low-tech process for those who are making jewellery into a career or creative activity.

Course cost excludes metal, students can expect to use $60 - $80 worth of silver or $20 - $30 of copper.
