    Have you ever wondered what happens when you heat metal until it looks like lava? Discover the amazing world of cast metal sculpture in this beginner's course! In this class we will learn shop safety and pour metal each day, creating one of a kind pieces from four different molding and pouring techniques. We will work with both molten aluminum and bronze. You can expect to experiment with modern and traditional methods while gaining experience in the ancient art of metal casting!

    Instructor: Jess Bergman Tank has degrees in both Studio Arts and Art History from the University of Minnesota. She has been instructing and experimenting with the metalcasting process for several years. Jess delights in sharing the love of casting with others and growing the casting community through instruction here at CAFAC and using her bicycle transported traveling foundry called Pedal to the Metal!
