Yesterday I was fortunate enough to spend the whole day casting hot molten metal (aluminum) at a workshop I took at Philadelphia Sculpture Gym, with about 8 or 9 other people. That’s me with my hot-out-of-the-mold sculpture of an african mask medallion. I had a blast, and so did all the other sculptors there. Some of them had some prior experience (as I do), and for some this was their very first attempt at sculpture (way to go, public relations-specialist Colleen!) Darla at PSG says they’ll run this course frequently (monthly?), but if you’re the type who’s bothered by working all day in an unheated space in January, you might want to wait for warmer weather.
