Learn the ancient 'lost wax' casting process. First, you'll learn basic moldmaking to duplicate a design in wax. This wax copy is then 'invested' in a plaster and sand mixture. Then the wax will be burned out of the plaster, leaving a void to be filled with bronze. Finally, finish your bronze and color it through 'chasing' and 'patination' techniques. All materials except the cost of bronze are included in supply fee. Prerequisite: None Supply Fee $115

Green woodworking is when you use a freshly cut log. The extra moisture in the wood makes carving way easier to do then when working with dried wood. Experience getting to work green wood with an adze and a hook knife to make a bowl. Bowls in this carving style tend to take on a deeper platter shape and often tool marks are intentionally left for visual interest due to the texture they leave behind. All experience levels are welcome. If you have taken Ed's Carving Tool Making class, this will be a fun opportunity to use your new tools. ***This class will meet in the youth room.

Damascus steel, the stuff of ancient legends, is taken one step further in the current way of replicating it by forge welding layered steel with a hydraulic press. Celeste Tracy has been making Damascus at Pratt for nine years and continues to be fascinated with the process. She will familiarize students with this process by using Pratt's Damascus forge and hydraulic press built specifically for this purpose. This technique opens up the possibilities of a myriad of designs and uses for the patterned steel produced. The student will come away with a billet ready to transform into a future work of art.

Learn how to build curved wood shapes using veneer, a vacuum press, and a whoooole lotta glue. In this class, you'll learn the process of vacuum-press bent wood lamination by building your own custom-shaped skateboard deck. On day one, you'll sculpt the form for your deck from rigid foam insulation, cut maple veneers to shape, and work as a team to glue up your veneer stack. Overnight, your lamination will dry as atmospheric pressure holds the wood to the form. On day two, you'll remove your now-solid deck from the vacuum press, shape and sand the edges and faces of your custom deck, and drill truck holes (if you bring your own trucks). If time permits, you can also apply a sealer clear coat. This class is great for anyone--beginners to experts--who want to learn how to bend wood...for skateboards, furniture, or other woodworking applications. All supplies and tools for making your skateboard deck are supplied. Trucks, wheels, nuts/bolts, and bearings are not included. Bring your own trucks for drilling truck holes.
