1-Day Bell-Making Workshop
In this hands-on workshop at Arcosanti, you will learn the unique silt-cast bell-making process developed by The Cosanti Foundation and used every day by the artisans of Cosanti Originals to make our world-famous ceramic windbells. As a participant, you will have the opportunity to cast and carve your own one-of-a-kind ceramic bell. This process involves using clay and dirt to create your bell, so come prepared to get your hands dirty!
Participants will learn our silt-cast ceramics process, including:
- preparation of the silt beds
- creation of the molds
- pouring the clay slip
- drying the clay
- processing and coloring the bells
- bell carving
The actual firing and assembly will be completed by our ceramics staff, and your work will be shipped directly to you.
