Sand Mold Carving Workshop

at Cambridge Wood Fired Pottery

Intermediate Sand Mold Workshop

at FeLion Studios

Sunday July 14 2019, 10am-7pm (break for lunch included)

Sunday, July 21 2019, 10am-7pm (break for lunch included)

This class is not for the faint of heart.

Take your cast iron sculpture game to a new level this year by starting in oil clay and ending with an incredibly detailed relief sculpture made in iron at Midwest Fire Fest. We will deep-dive into the sand mold making process by letting you mix and pack your own sand mold around the clay creation you make during the first part of the day. Get your hands dirty and be prepared to get inspired by making something unimaginably unique from your own hands.

Take-Home Sand Molds

Pickup at FeLion Studios
