Come play in the sand with us!
Join us for our next in a series of hands-on sand casting and foundry practice workshops. We still have space for a few more students and we'd love to see you there.

In this full-day, hands-on workshop, taught by Knight Foundry’s own experts, you will experience the entire foundry workflow.

To register, or to join the mailing list for future classes, please reply to this email or call 209-560-6160.

The workshop will begin with the basics of sand preparation and conditioning, then move to the foundry for instruction on bench molding and furnace operation. We’ll cover advanced skills using cores, and as you work you’ll gain a wealth of molding and casting tips and tricks. Our staff will pour completed student molds in aluminum and provide feedback on the castings.

The workshop is Saturday, March 7 at Knight Foundry in Sutter Creek. Sign-in begins at 7:30 am with complimentary muffins, coffee, and more. The workshop starts promptly at 8:00 am and runs until about 5:00 pm. The fee is $200, which includes all materials and lunch.

We hope you can join us for this unique workshop. Your participation will help us to achieve our goal of perpetuating the traditional and fundamental industrial skills in danger of being lost in the rush toward technology and automation. We know you’ll enjoy every minute of this experience.

We look forward to seeing you in class.
