1-Day Silt Casting Workshop

Sale price Price $160.00 Regular price

In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn and experience the unique earth cast process utilized at both Cosanti and Arcosanti. This process involves using the ground as the formwork to create the Cosanti bells and pottery. Participants will have the opportunity to cast and create their own one-of-a-kind ceramic bell.

Participants will learn the silt cast ceramics process including: preparation of the silt beds, creation of the molds and pouring the clay slip. You will also learn about drying the clay, processing and coloring the bells, carving principles and knife skills. The actual firing and assembly will be completed at a later date and your work will be shipped directly to you.

Class time: 9am - 4pm, 1 hour break for lunch (bring your own lunch or purchase lunch from the Cafe at Arcosanti).

Maximum Number of Participants per Workshop: 8
