Classes at The New Flesh Workshop

New Flesh offers classes on fabrication for various applications such as electronics, animatronics, mold making, body casting, sculpture and engineering . We are currently hosting all-ages classes for adults and children (when accompanied by a guardian), and will soon be offering a dedicated afters-school program for kids ages 8-18 starting with our Fall 2018 Session. We provide fun, hands-on, immersive courses geared towards direct experiential learning. We also host private tutoring sessions by appointment for various topics in Fabrication, Science, Art and Biological sciences.

Parents and children working as teams to make a single in-class project only pay ONE fee!

Summer Workshops:

Summer workshops at New Flesh are 3-4 consecutive day intensive courses focused on specific projects. Each class is 3-4 hours depending on the project. Because these are intensive courses we advise all students to  attend all classes. There will be make up days throughout the summer if needed but some projects have time sensitive steps and it may become difficult to catch up with the class. All materials costs are included in the course fees.

LOST WAX METAL CASTING: AUGUST 13-16

          Lost wax casting has been used for millennia to create metal objects using readily available materials. Participants in this course will learn how to create a silicone mold of a small object which will then be cast in wax. That wax mold cast is used to make a special plaster mold called an investment. The wax is then burned out of the investment leaving room to pour in molten metal! This course covers the lost wax process as well as how to pour metal ingots and create a DIY metal casting furnace! All participants should bring several small objects (anything that would fit in a 3in x 3in x 3in cube) to choose from as some objects may be far more difficult to cast than others.

This class is MESSY! Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty.
