Course Overview 

Explore unique silver textures, patterns, and shapes created through primitive processes of salt, water, and broom casting. Watch molten silver droplets cascade into cool water, solidify over linear sections of broom, or form frosty angular shapes that harden over salt. Learn to create a personalized pendant, pin or set of earrings from these organic casted forms. Experience in jewellery making is beneficial; however, all skill levels are welcome! One-hour lunch break.
