Added section of Aluminum Casting! June 26-30 9:30-noon, Ages 13-17
Although ancient Greeks and Romans used aluminum salts to set dyes in fabric and as astringents for dressing wounds, metallic aluminum was not refined until 1825. It is the third most abundant element in the Earth’s crust (after oxygen and silicon) and its most abundant metal. To make it stronger, aluminum is almost always alloyed with other metals like copper, zinc or magnesium. The melting point of aluminum is over 1,200 degrees! In this class you will experiment with different ways to cast sculptures, parts, pieces, and thing-a- ma-jigs by pouring liquid aluminum into sand molds.
