Kootenay Studio Arts at Selkirk College will be part of the eclectic mix sights and sounds arriving at the Salmo River Ranch this weekend for the Shambhala Music Festival.

In an effort to promote the programming at the Nelson-based art school, a portable foundry has been built that will allow faculty and recent graduates to provide demonstrations of bronze casting.

Designed from scratch by KSA faculty assistant Wright Simmonds (left), the portable furnace will be fired up for all four days of the annual festival.

KSA metal casting instructor Denis Kleine (right) will be spearheading the demonstrations. For more information on KSA programming for this coming fall head to selkirk.ca/program/studio-arts-diploma.
