Metalsmith - Cuttlefish bone casting
Cuttlefish bone casting is a fun ancient technique of creating cast objects. You will discover the immediacy of casting with cuttlefish bone and the unique textures it can create. Using this fun method we will create sculptures and jewelry out of sterling silver, bronze and copper. You will use fire, acids, hammer, file, drills, polishing machines and tools to shape your creation and make it shine. At the end of the week, parents will be invited to our art show to see how ancient technique enabled us to create modern art.
