1 Day Silt Casting Workshop

Sale price Price $150.00 Regular price

In this hands-on workshop participants will learn and experience the unique earth cast process developed at Cosanti and utilized at both Cosanti and Arcosanti. This process involves using the ground as the formwork to create the Cosanti bells and pottery. The workshop will cover the silt cast ceramics process, including: preparation of the silt beds, creation of the molds, and pouring the clay slip. Participants will also learn about drying the clay, processing and coloring the bells, carving principles and knife skills as well as having the opportunity to cast and create their own one-of-a-kind ceramic bell. The actual firing and assembly will be completed at a later date and your work will be shipped to you.

Class time: 9am - 4pm

Lodging is available in a shared dorm for $25 per night, or a private guest room for $50 per night.
