Pewter Casting (Make-a-tion 2013)

Pewter CastingWhat is pewter? A beloved metal by artists and makers alike, perfect for jewelry, figurines, earrings, robot parts, etc. And casting it is super easy, we’ll show you how. This workshop will cover casting with both specialized casting supplies and “make-your-own” affordable substitutes so you can learn and practice the craft without a large initial investment.

Due to the use of fire and very hot materials (molten metal!) we request parents be present to help children who want to participate.

Cost: $20 (or pay what you can)

When: 8/10/13 – 11am

Where: The workshop will take place at Makerspace Urbana located in the basement room #16 of the Independent Media Center in Urbana. The space can be a little tricky to find but if you enter through the back Bike Project door (near the radio tower) and take your first left, we’re at the end of the hall. If you have any trouble finding us, just call (816) 287-1717.
