Casting Concrete for Small Furniture
Learn all the steps for making a concrete top and a welded table base, or bench, or other piece of furniture of your choosing. Gain confidence in the welding studio by learning basic welding and steel fabrication methods while creating the base. With basic woodworking skills, build a plywood form for the concrete component. Because freshly poured concrete is heavy and fragile, casting at home will be most successful, but at least two full concrete pours will be demonstrated in class. Leave class with all the parts and knowledge to complete your personal piece of sculptural furniture at home. The supply fee covers material related to concrete; metal sheet and rod will be available for purchase at market rates during class. All levels welcome.
