Tufa Casting – G18034

Workshop ID: G18034
Dates: March 25 - March 31
Price: $600.00 - $1,475.00

The Spanish introduced the art of silversmithing to the Native tribes of the Southwest in the late 1800’s. Over time, they mastered this art form to the present day where American Indian jewelry is highly sought after by collectors all over the world. Tufa Casting is a technique developed by American Indian artists to which the regional volcanic stone is integral to the creative process. Tufa serves as the mold for casting silver to create unique one-of-a-kind pieces found nowhere else in the world. Join Master Hopi Artist, Steve Wikviya LaRance, to learn this process creating rings, pendants and earrings.
