Intro to Moldmaking

This workshop is an Introduction to Basic Mold Making to be held as a “learn by doing” type class where participants will make a mold of an object, with the goal to be knowledge of how to continue making versus a ‘final object’ result. There will be a demonstration and explanation of the ‘whys’ behind mold making as well as a handout defining basic terms and techniques, followed by participants each making their own mold, a “positive” cast to be taken from that mold in clay. (If desired this positive can be fired to hardness and picked up the next week). Last will be a final explanation of further materials and methods.

**Participants will learn how to make an Impression Mold and 2-Part Molding will be discussed. 

There will be a variety of appropriate items available to mold, but you can bring an object of your own to try provided it has no undercuts.

Class size is limited to 10 People (so everyone can have hands on instruction).

Cost is $35 / Person and includes both Materials and Instruction.

Pre-Registration is Required.

The gate code and pre workshop instructions will be emailed 2-days prior.
