All are welcome to join this free online event to observe.
Members are encouraged to drop off their wax models or other objects for casting at BARN one week before. Due to limited space in the kiln, you must register for a spot to have your items casted. Reservation must be made by April 14th to have your items casted for this viewing event. Please click here to read more and reserve a spot in the kiln for this presentation.
