Beginning Greensand Workshop


    James Vanderpool and Cassi Rebman, Metals Museum


    Participants will learn how to make oil-bonded greensand, use process-specific tooling, and discover the possibilities as well as the limitations of this type of molding process. Participants will make two (2), two-part molds. The participants will make one small mold using switch plate patterns provided by the workshop instructors. The second mold can be made from various patterns provided by the workshop instructors or a pattern brought by the participant, no larger than 6” x 6” x 4 inches thick. The patterns for the two-part mold should be made of a rigid durable material, such as wood, metal, or hard plastic. The fee includes greensand, patterns, flasks, and iron.
