Full Moon Metal Casting for Grown Ups
Time & Location
About the Event
This full Moon name is attributed to Native Americans because it marked when corn was supposed to be harvested. Most often, the September full Moon is actually the Harvest Moon, which is the full Moon that occurs closest to the fall equinox.
In two years out of three, the Harvest Moon comes in September, but in some years it occurs in October. At the peak of harvest, farmers can work late into the night by the light of this Moon.
Usually the full Moon rises an average of 50 minutes later each night, but for the few nights around the Harvest Moon, the Moon seems to rise at nearly the same time each night: just 25 to 30 minutes later across the U.S., and only 10 to 20 minutes later for much of Canada and Europe.
Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice the chief Indian staples are now ready for gathering.
Let's manifest this inspiration in our cast-metal sculptures this month!
Everyone can expect to make at least one and likely more small scale sculpture(s) and/or charms during the session. Participant artists will have the opportunity to finish the sculpture(s) through filing, ink patinas, and any other needed adjustments to realize their celestial visions. Class size is limited to minimize risks in this Covid time and masks are required.
