Tufa stone casting

Create pewter molds in just an afternoon!

Durable yet easy to carve, tufa stone is an ideal material for creating casts. In this class, you’ll create your own cast, learn to pour pewter, and customizing your piece of jewelry, small sculpture, or ornament by coloring, pickling, or polishing it. Multiple castings can be made from the same mold, too!

No experience is required, although experienced metalworkers will also benefit from new insights into this fascinating process.
