Create a pattern you can cast into metal and begin your casting journey!

About this Class

Learn one of many ways to create a pattern of the casting you envision. Once completed, you can use the pattern in our “Metal Casting in the Foundry” class to create a mold for molten bronze or aluminum to produce your casting.

Making a pattern is the first of three basic steps of the Foundry Arts:

  1. Make the pattern,
  2. Form the mold and pour metal to create the casting, and
  3. Finish the casting

BARN offers related casting classes including The Basics of Metal Casting (online), Pattern-Making for Casting in the Foundry where you learn how to make patterns used to produce a working mold, and Metal Casting in the Foundry where you make molds from patterns and pour molten metal into the mold to form the casting. A foundry casting event - Guided Open Studio - is available to those who’ve attended Metal Casting in the Foundry or who have demonstrated competency in the foundry. Our goal is to host this event each month, so check the calendar. Registration is required for all Foundry and Casting events.

After completing your mold, register for our next metal casting class here
