Lead Free Pewter Casting Class, learn to cast pewter at home for fun and profits.August 29, 9:00am - 12:00pmMetal Clay Class By Donald NorrisClass Fee: $110.00Kit Fee: $70.00 Kit will include all pewter to cast the two hummingbirds and one columbine flower, plus one additional sculpture that students can pick from several different molds, and materials for the class. Students do not need to bring anything to the class. Student
Skill Level: All
This class is open to everyone of skill levels from a complete beginner, Ages 12 and above are welcome.
Make a memory of a life time for you and/or your children! Have fun learning something that is
exciting, educational, and something that most people never get to see or do, cast metal, pewter
sculptures. Students will taught how Don Norris sculptures his sculptures using wax and only an
Exacto knife. There will not be time to sculpt anything during this class. Most sculptures take
days to weeks to sculpt and finish. However, you will have a thorough understanding of how so
that you can begin sculpting at home. Students will also be taught how mold sculptures. We will
pour a small mold so that you will have the knowledge and experience to make your own molds
at home. The different kinds of mold rubbers available will be taught, but you will be amazed
that you can use very available silicone rubber available on Amazon.com that with the
techniques that you will be taught, can be used to cast pewter at 650 degrees Fahrenheit. This
mold rubber is 12 times cheaper than the only mold rubber than is sold for casting metal into.
Students will be taught what metals can be called “pewter” and the laws governing the use of
pewter. We will discuss metals, how they are mined, what alloys are, and the lead-free pewter
that we use. Students will cast their own pewter hummingbirds and flower. Each hummingbird
has a ring on it between the wings for hanging as an ornament. Each participant will cast and
keep two hummingbirds and a flower. One as an ornament and one that the beak can be placed
into the flower to make a beautiful sculpture! The pewter that we cast is lead free “American
Fine” pewter. Participants will “pour” this pewter directly in to solid rubber molds. After a few
minutes to allow them to freeze, students will remove their pewter sculptures. After cooling the
sculptures students will be taught how to cut the sprues off, grind and clean up the sculptures.

Pine Needle Casting PendantAugust 31, 2:00pm - 5:00pmSee Other DatesMetal Clay Class By Greg NorrisClass Fee: $110.00Kit Fee: $70.00 Kit will include one half ounce of Fine Silver, Sterling Silver wire for the bail. Students do not need to bring anything to the class.
Skill Level: All
This class is open to everyone of skill levels from a complete beginner to advanced Silversmiths that wish to make a successful business while having fun making Silver projects. Ages 12 and above are welcome.
Each participant will cast one Fine Silver (.999 Silver) pendant using a method that Don Norris perfect 40 years ago using a bundle of pine needles and pour one half ounce of Fine Silver into the “hay stack” of pine needles. The pine needles will act as a mold, molding the Silver into a one-of-a-kind pendant. No two will be the same. They will then search through the needles and find their pine needle casting. Students will be able to cast another one until they get one, they love. After casting, the instructor will solder a Sterling Silver bail onto the casting, making it into a beautiful pendant. Each pendant will be cleaned and tumbled polished. The soldering techniques used were developed by Don Norris over 50 years ago and will be explained by the instructor. The tumble polishing technique will also be taught to the students.
