In this unique metalworking maker experience, artist-instructor, Derrick Monk, will lead you to carve a simple piece of styrofoam into a piece that you will then turn into a lost-material mold for casting in aluminum. You will leave with the finished aluminum piece of your own creation!

This is a great workshop to make some multi-dimensional and all YOUR own! Check out the awesome aluminum metal cast art created by two of our members:

Appropriate attire: Shirt of natural fibers, jeans, and shoes that completely cover feet. Safety gear will be supplied.

Also, don't forget you're playing with fire, so depending on the time of day and season, a hat, sunscreen and bottle of water could be useful.
