BARN is now offering a "Casting by Proxy" service to Members who wish to have their wax or 3d models cast.
This registration is the due date cut off to reserve your spot in the kiln and have your waxes cast by Nanz.
Once a month, Members are encouraged to drop off their wax models or other objects for casting at BARN. Due to limited space in the kiln, you must register and reserve a spot to have your items ready for casting. Members are allowed 3 items max to be casted.
Please watch for the form emailed to you in your confirmation email. This will need to be printed and returned to BARN with your wax carvings to be casted by Friday, April 16th. Your items will be processed next week at the live viewing. To participate in that live viewing next week, please click here to register.
A Casting By Proxy live viewing session will be held the third Wednesday of each month where you can watch your submitted wax models casted. To watch the next event on April 21 please click here to register.
