If you’re interested in watching demonstrations of cuttlefish casting, I’ll be providing plenty of opportunities for you to see the fun and learn about the technique at this years Lost Trades Fair in Kyneton on the Labour Day weekend the 9th & 10th March 2019.
Expect to fill all your senses during a demonstration of the technique – there’s the the heat of the gas, the noise of the torch, the smell of the burning cuttlefish bone, the excitement of watching as the silver becomes molten and is carefully poured into the cuttlefish bone mould, and the snap crackle and pop as it cools.
I’ll be demonstrating the carving and casting across both days, I’ll also have an exhibition of recent work available for sale, please come and say hi.
